European & Dutch Champion Long Distance 2017 and worldrecord: 14 (Fourteen!) times Sub 9 hours
Full speed ahead It’s almost „THAT“ time, one week to go before my season kicks off! To say I’m a bit excited is the understatement off the year ;-) My last update waswritten on Mallorca, after that it became a bit quiet and one off the reasons for thatwas that I got sick, sick??? Yes I’m hardly ever sick but the over-full Hotel with so many sick people, everybody was coughing from the day we arrived, a bit overworked Yvonne, not the huge amount of average sleep that I normally get, not being able to react and do what my body wanted to do, well it added up and the worst thing was that I did listen to my body and knew this was not going well, but just couldn’t really do anything about the circumstances :-( It took very long to get rid off this stupid cold but I can happily say that I’m good and healthy again and the weather has finally changed for the good here in Europe as well. Last week I was honored to be part of the Press conference of Challenge Roth in Nürnberg. Challenge Roth will celebrate a 35th birthday this year and as the race isn’t already the highlight off the European season anyway, they have some great extra stuff planned, including a triple of the price money that we normally have in Roth. The race will be held on July 1st and will see a stellar field on both the men and women side. You can find all the information about my first big A- race of 2018 in Roth here: Before it’s time to had over to Roth for the 8 time ( 2007-2008-2013-2014-2015-2016-2017-2018!) I will have some great races planned to gear up and get race ready. After my first 2018 win in Gran Canaria the next race will be Challenge Riccione (former Challenge Rimini) on May 5th.
