"Maybe the duckface selfie wasn't that bad after all..." . . . Recently I saw a post of a runner. I noticed the reactions were quite intense. . . Of course, the post could have been written with more nuance maybe, but the post and reactions made me think... . . Why ? Nothing wrong to share a post of a run, even when it was hot, you were tired, back from injury, fastest, longest etc.. . Social media is about to share. Also to ask, although sometimes I might think why people didn't Google a minute before asking others. Never mind, we are keen to help. . . Selfies before, during, after.. Prefered with your beloved app (fill in your choice from Strava, Nike+, Polar, Runkeeper whatever). Or maybe even better: photos of a run you competed in. . Rise & shine at start to half-below-grounds after hitting a wall, till smiling with medal. Like these photos of a guy in green shirt who hit the wall and still had a lot of kilometers to go.. 😁 . . Real photos from the world of running. . . I think the other tried to make a point I recognize: there are some who seem to make more effort to get an action picture then the sports of running itself. Putting camera with selftimer in a tree and running several times till the photo is right... . . I've seen bizarre photos. People who seem to run out of a lake with dry clothes.. I thought, what secret do they have I don't know, because when I get out of the water.... πŸ˜‰ Also a million dollar tip for triatlon.. . Another: someone came as it seemed on the photo - sprinting just 5 steps out of the Colosseum of Rome. Regarding architecture of that building, that is quite an achievement.. πŸ˜‰ . . At moments I wonder if a new subculture in photography is in the making from which we think in a while.. that maybe the duckface selfie wasn't that bad after all πŸ˜‰ . . Nothing wrong being enthousiastic about running. Understood you want to look good. To inspire others to start and keep running.. don't forget the essence of it πŸ˜‰. . . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #igersnpdc #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #run #laufen #ilh #fitdutchie #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland
Rest days in aspect of running means you have time to look at other things. . A round through the garden tells me that the heatwave first with afterwards a storm was a bit too much for some of my roses. . Fortunately there are new roses coming up. . The hydrengia is flourishing under these conditions though. . Summer time with a little bbq at the end of a monday. Why not. 😎 . . Tomorrow training again as preparation for upcoming endurance sprint during a 10KM race. . A whole different ball game after marathon I happen to like as well. . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #igersnpdc #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #run #laufen #ilh #fitdutchie #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #hydrengia #rose #garden #summer #summertime #igersholland
Okay, it has been settled. My club has arranged my entry for next race. A 10K. Sooner ready then I may have hoped for. Only some weeks after the marathon of Edinburgh, which was my second marathon this season. . This photo is taken some weeks ago around the 10th kilometer of the Edinburgh Marathon. . Apparently this is one of the manners I tend to run false flats sometimes. Head up high and throw legs forward, to vary with head a bit forward and start to 'dance' a little when the false flat becomes a slope, so you can move the legs with less efforts coming from the legs. It works for me. πŸ˜‰ . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #igersnpdc #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #run #laufen #ilh #fitdutchie #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #edinburghmarathon #portobello #igersholland #seenonmyrun #strava
Nice coast run this morning with the club after short (or long) day with festivities and radio broadcast live last night. . Nevertheless the legs felt good, so I made some pace up the climb called Up La Poterie. First time I ran this sector. A nice slope over 1.2 kilometers run through the wind. I measured a moment over 10.3% 😁 . . Later we ran a sector that is quite a hotspot on Strava. Normally I run this sector low pace as warming-up or something. . . Today I gave it a shot to test the juice in the legs. Ran the 35th time overall ever out of 311 other runners. So we can say the shape is getting back for upcoming 10K race. . Not at full strength yet from recuperation after last marathon, but I can be happy with the shape I discovered today already. . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #igersnpdc #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #run #laufen #ilh #fitdutchie #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland #stampyc #seenonmyrun #strava #relive

Je reviendrai ! πŸ˜‰ I'll be back ! First run after the Edinburgh Marathon Festival that I felt that the juice in the legs is back. . A week later maybe then I'm used to after a marathon. But hey, if that is the only reaction of the body after running two full marathons in a season, I'm not complaining 😁. . Started at 6:00/km progressive to 4:30/km. I ran in this run today also some short climbs up to +90m D which went well too. . So an enjoyable run and guess I will be ready to run 10K races flat out soon. . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #igersnpdc #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #run #laufen #ilh #fitdutchie #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland #seenonmyrun #strava #relive
'Warming-up' run with 33℃, under a burning sun without any wind... Maybe that was a bit warm πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜Ž . . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #igersnpdc #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #run #laufen #ilh #fitdutchie #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igersfrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland #strava #relive
"C'est parti mon kiki". Registration done for halfmarathon Lille, 'Semi de Lille MΓ©tropole'. . The fastest halfmarathon track of France in a nice setting. In the weekend of the well known Brocante market of Lille. . So as halfmarathon we will run downtown the beautiful city. Once over the finish, the market and party will start with as an old tradition everybody starts to eat "moules-frites". Mussels with fries. . To be sure I won't arrive too late for the mussels with chips, I'll start in the wave 1h30 and below πŸ˜πŸ‘ŠπŸƒπŸ’¨ . . #course #instarunfrance #runaddict #igersnpdc #hardlopen #ikloophard #hardlopenisleuk #run #laufen #ilh #fitdutchie #runnerswanderlust #run2day #igersfrance #Lille #HautsdeFrance #igersbelgium #igersbelgique #igersholland
No filter needed. The end of again a warm summer's day in Les 7 VallΓ©es, France. . These cute little flowers are both a disaster for purists of gardening, or a delight for lovers of fruits. Personally I prefere the last as blackberries go very well on top of a yogurt, vanilla ice or in a smoothie πŸ˜‹. . Earlier today accompanied my eldest son with school swimming which was a nice moment for the both of us. . Tomorrow restart with running again after some rest days. I had to listen to the general fatigue in the body to prefend injuries. After an intensive spring season with a lot of races and marathons. . Maybe I restarted training after two marathons a bit soon too the other day. No harm done, second restart tomorrow. 😊 .

Toenails are for sissies! Recovering from two marathons like this, I can get used to that. Only thing lacking is a palm tree 😎🌞 . As you can see, it's now 31℃ here in France in the evening. A lovely temperature. This afternoon it was over 35℃, maybe that is a bit warm. πŸ˜‰ . . Probably the toenails won't survive the two full marathons and other races done this season. Part of the deal as distance runner. . Report of my last marathon (Edinburgh Scotland, IAAF bronze label) with photo, video and Relive animation available via link in my Bio. . Light training with runs has restarted since two weeks. Slightly it will intensify to some upcoming 10K races this summer, a halfmarathon or two, the French national trail TCO (31K) and one or two marathons again 😁. . Have a great day all ! 🌞. .

Around 30KM mark in Edinburgh Marathon running through the notorious marathon wall. . Each marathon holds a part in the track, that can be the opposite of large crowds and glamour. It's a 42KM distance run, so not likely there will be cheering crowds all along. . This sector was in an old park of a manor house near sea. And despite the setting was nice you can read the expression in the face, I wasn't enjoying myself here. . A marathon is more a mindgame with time trial then a race. It's not about beating someone else; it's about you, the time, pace and distance. . And again, it's just you, your mind, your running feet, your body. . And despite all the other runners and crowds cheering, you're on your own in all different stages of the 42.195 KM distance. . To overcome and run through the marathon wall gives a marathon medal more then twice the shine and magic then a medal of a halfmarathon run. .
