Count down to Berlin

with Sjaak Haasnoot:

🏅 Why do you participate in the Berlin Marathon?
Marloes is an employee of Northwave and had been training for the marathon for some time. One day she came home and there was a place available, if I wanted to fill it. I didn’t have to think long about that. Of course, I will join Northwave in the Berlin Marathon.

🎧  What is your favourite workout song to run to?
I like to listen to radio1 while running. For me it’s not about the music but more about the interviews and stories. If I do listen to music while running I like to listen to house, the louder the beat the better. Even though it does not make me run any faster.

💪 What is your most inspirational quote to keep you motivated to run?
There is no six-week schedule to get Sjaak ready for the marathon.

What I can say about my preparations for the marathon is …

My preparations are quite short. I really enjoyed cycling in the summer. I particularly like the area around Valkenbug. However, my condition turned out to be okay, just not with running. From August 15, I haven’t touched the bike anymore, but I have touched my running shoes.

In the 60 days left before the Marathon I am planning to ….

I didn’t stick to a schedule. I kept running a bit further each time and hope for willpower, the beautiful route through Berlin and the spectators that I will cross the finish line in a reasonable amount of time.

I am most looking forward to…

I’d like to get to know all the Northwavers a little better. During the Mudmasters, the half Marathon and the Berlin marathon meeting I already got to shake some hands and see new faces. I look forward to getting to know you all a little better.
