Where I’ve been

I haven’t posted anything lately, because I was too busy doing other things… No excuses, just very lazy!

I went to Egypt with my mom and had a great week! To Belgium to visit an old friend who was getting married. To the beach with my cousin and had a sleepover with my friend Isis. I went to the Metropolis Festival in Rotterdam where I got my Cookie Monster airbrush tattoo xD. To a kinda festival in the city Schiedam with my friend and 3 of her 4 adorable kids. I started a new job: Reporter for the local tv channel. My best friend Matthijs got his first apartment so we’ve been working there to make it look good and: I GOT MY VERY FIRST MOTORCYCLE. My life’s been so good this month. I’ll post more about the most important events but for now some pictures of this month. I’m back!

Ladiesrun Rotterdam. I DID IT!!!

I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF :D!!
Today was a super special day for me: I ran the 5 km Ladiesrun Rotterdam, which I wrote about two months ago. Over the last months I’ve become more interested in running and I actually started to like the workout. The weather in Holland sucks like 80% of the year and this week it started to be freaking hot. Fortunately today was kinda cloudy so the weather was perfect for a lil run!

My goal was:  34:30 min
I ran the 5 km in: 29:44 min

Mission accomplished 😀

I felt super excited and nervous because I actually never really run 5 km before, but as soon as I started running today I felt really good. My friend Rory sent me a trance music album which I listened to while running and I used my Endomondo app to see how much time I had left.

My mom joined the run as well and ran it in 34 min and 44. I’m very proud of her!!

I loved the fact almost all ladies wore pink, it must’ve looked amazing! Sometimes I got a lil annoyed because the girls in front of me slowed down and at a certain moment the path was too small to pass them, but I’m still very happy with the result and I had a great day.

My dad and best friend Matthijs came to watch (they didn’t watch us running, they just went inside and drank a beer… oh well….lol). I’ll keep up the running and I’m pretty sure I’ll join next year’s Ladiesrun too!!! 🙂 And for now? Tired. Just fucking tired!

The Ladiesrun Rotterdam.

I’ve never been the Sporty Spice. I’m the kinda girl that likes to do nothing and eat chocolate whenever she wants. I never gained a lot and as long as I didn’t weight more than 62 kilos I was satisfied. But something has changed. I don’t wanna lose weight; I wanna feel fit! I’m gonna run 5 kilometres in June: I’m joining the Ladiesrun Rotterdam 2013!

When I was in Barcelona I got really fanatic. I trained for a week almost every day and I was surprised how fast I lost weight and more important; how fast I was able to reach those 5 km. I run it in 30 minutes but when I came back I started to get sick and didn’t go running that often anymore, so now I gotta start all over again. Running outdoors is so different from running on a treadmill but I’m sure I’ll be good by the time the run takes place. Until then I’m having fun training, mostly because of the amazing running gear in my favorite colors that I got from my mom, a friend and myself 😀 and the app I’m using: Endomondo.
This app is amazing and you can use it for every imaginable sport!
