A few months ago I pledged to start running more regularly. I set myself a goal; to run the Nike Women’s 10km Amsterdam, followed by the Nike Women’s 10km Berlin. In my first week of training I got injured because I was going too hard too fast (get the irony there?). Despite this injury, I’m happy to say I did it!
From Amsterdam to Berlin
After the 10km Amsterdam, I couldn’t wait to run the Berlin race. The energy in Amsterdam was amazing and I was psyched to do it again, I even checked if I could join other races as well – unfortunately I couldn’t, but that’s a nice one for next year :). Before the race in Berlin, I was actually in Berlin for almost two weeks already – although I worked out quite a lot (thanks Karca), the nightlife got to me a little and I became scared as race day approached. As fit as I felt in Amsterdam, as not-fit I felt in Berlin. What can I say, as a half German I have this preset love for beer, haha. So I biked to Flughafen Tempelhof, where the start and finish was, with mixed feelings – especially because I had eaten quite heavy food before (tip when you’re in Berlin; here I had this amazing hummus/falafel plate with pita bread).
Men with wigs.. Gotta love Berlin!
