Happy New Year 2014

So here I am 30 weeks pregnant and about to start a new year! This is my absolute favorite time of the year.  It is the perfect time for reflection and processing of one year and setting intentions for the next.  I love fresh starts and the chance to start anew.  I get excited about what lies ahead and hopeful that I will continue to grow into the person I strive to be.  That sounds so cheesy, but it's so true!

2013 has been a good year and hopefully 2014 will be even better!  I have so much I want to accomplish in 2014, personally and professionally, and I intend to do everything in my power to make it happen.

One of the most exciting event is the birth of my little girl!!! 70 days to go till delivery and I just can't wait to have her in my arms!!!

My last race in 2013 was on November 17th in Nijmegen, Zevenheuvelenloop! A beautiful 15 km at 6 months Pregnant where I still managed to run at 5'/km and finish with a time of 1:15 I was freaking impressed!!
My knee injury became better and since then I kept trying to run at least 3 times a week and it is going well! The weights is packing on me, I dont feel like a runner anymore but still, going out on a run makes me happy even if it is getting really slow! I am thankful that I can keep doing what I love to do! It is so strange to see your body changing like that! I keep reminding myself that I will get back the body I want after I deliver my beautiful baby! Now I shouldn't worry so much about getting huge ;) I try to enjoy my pregnancy as much as possible!

My 2013 Recap in pictures!

I managed to run 2800km for 2013
I am also proud to say that I am ranked the 46th lady in the Netherlands in the marathon ranking!

 I run 2 international marathons Boston and Berlin Marathon at 4 months Pregnant!
