My favorite moments of 2017

Before we reach February and everyone starts to forget that new year’s resolutions are ‘a thing’, I thought I should hurry up and post a belated 2017 retrospective.


Last year has been the most turbulent running year yet. 2017 had fantastic highlights interrupted by the turmoil of nagging injury.


Since we are all still busy grinding away at the resolutions, I’ll keep it short. Here are my 2017 top 10 headlines in chronological order:


14 minute PB at the notorious Egmond half marathon


Canyon Endurance impresses on its maiden ride


3rd place at a local 11km trail run despite months of interrupted running


Joy and relief as the summit of Mont Ventoux is a thing of the past


Unexpected second place in Amsterdam at first duathlon

In short, it was a crazy year for running and cycling that will be near impossible to top!
