Leiden Half Marathon-Holland

No better way to get to know a new place than run through it! Leiden Half Marathon goodness today! I do it for the smiles and the solid good leg burn ...oh and the beer at the end (photo included) 😉🍺

It was a scorcher, and I maybe got 4 hours sleep last night with the jet lag, BUT it was a beautiful course and I finished. It was easy to get distracted with the beauty of the town and surrounding landscapes and all the cute animals around (horses, ducks, sheep). Such good vibes on the course with the local community coming out to cheer us on, spray us down with water from their hoses, and play some fun beats. Bonus was getting to hang with Myrthe after the race and getting to explore the city a bit more and enjoy the sun from the lovely canals.

Nice for training as well, as I leave for Kilimanjaro in less than a week!

Moving our bodies is a gift, it was a good day!
