Running in Clearwater Beach

Spending a week in Clearwater Beach: what’s not to like? I stayed in a hotel right on the beach, which has the finest, whitest sand you’ve ever seen. Even though it was a work trip, my schedule had more than enough free time to enjoy the beach. I saw many people run in the afternoon […]

Me and Moov: The App

A few weeks ago I bought a new tracker: Moov Now which I have been testing. And so far, it’s been a pretty good experience. First, the tracker itself. As I wrote in my last blog, the tracker is small, lightweight and you will hardly notice it is there. I wear it on my ankle while […]

The irony of writing a blog on my new tracker right after I published a post how running without trackers is more fun is not lost on me. But you could also say that if a tracker is able to convince me, it must be special! And yes, Moov is cool! I stumbled upon Moov Now […]

Running in New York

It was pitch dark and freezing cold when I left my hotel at 5.30am in the morning after donning running gear. I was staying in a hotel close to Columbus and as I only was in New York for 2 days, I was determined to run in Central Park. It had snowed the day before […]

Running in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s small enough to walk everywhere and there is history around every corner. So I never miss an opportunity to visit. If you expect that I run along the canals in Amsterdam, you’re bound to be disappointed. Though exceptionally beautiful, I won’t recommend running in […]
