Count down to Berlin
with Marloes Wijnholds:
🏅 Why do you participate in the Berlin Marathon?
I love to run. It helps me to clear my head, gain energy, improve my condition and at the same time relax. It sometimes feels as a form of meditation especially when I run early in the morning. But I always run shorter distances like a 5km or 10km and the occasional 20km. But I’ve never ran a marathon. It has always been on my (I really hate the term, but ok) bucket-list. I just want to experience if I’m able to run 42 km. Because running a marathon is no small feat. Some even say running a marathon is life-changing and I would like to experience if that indeed is the case.
🎧 What is your favourite workout song to run to?
Everything upbeat, house mixes. Although in my training for the marathon I don’t listen to any music. My biggest challenge is to run at a slower pace and with an upbeat song in my ears that’s even a bigger challenge
💪 What is your most inspirational quote to keep you motivated to run?
Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.
