|A passion for running|
|Who I am |
Arrival Marathon Visť 2010
I started running the weekend after the baptism of my eldest son Wim, September 1976.
The first years: hilly runs of 8-15km, twice a week.
After my move to Janssen Pharmaceutica, because of work the frequency fell back to 10km once a week.
Every now and than I increased training to 3-4/week, but the serious stuff started in October 1997 when I started working with Peter Lauper, a passionate runner.
I got the passion for good now and increased training to 40-100km a week, culminating into the NYC Marathon on November 5th, 2000 (the story of a marathon). And another marathon in Berlin (the story of another marathon) in 2006, and two in Antwerp (2007 and 2008), another one in Berlin 2009, and the finest in Visť 2010. Find my results for 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
In April 2016 I was diagnosed to have a heart rhytm disturbance, resulting from my frequent running - the end.
