This morning the online registration for the Dam tot Damloop 2011 started at 9 am. This is by far the most popular race in Holland and it’s full within 30 minutes (40.000 participants). As I offered to organize a team for our company, I was ready behind my computer at 9. And the server was down immediately. With some errors I finally was able to register but wasn’t sure everything went okay cause I had some errors during it. Because it’s a work thing I entered my work email address so I couldn’t check. I called the helpdesk and first they said we weren’t in and it was sold out. Damn!
But then she checked again and ……….. WE’RE IN!
We registered for 1 team of 10 people, so far I’ve got 9 but will find a last victim to run with us.
All I have to do now is order shirts for us but I’ve got time.
Guess what I’m wearing today ….. FLIP FLOPS!
Yes, that’s right! It’s the most beautiful day here in Holland today: sunshine, sunshine and nothing but sunshine, clear blue sky, no wind at all and it’s about to get up to 22C (71 degrees) today.
So if you’re looking for me … I’ll be sitting outside with my book! 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!
After 2 crappy runs this week, I decided to take it easy on today’s run. Just run and see how it goes. It wasn’t perfect, both my legs felt very tired, but it was better than the other runs. The weather was absolutely beautiful: sunny, no wind, 12C (53 degrees) and that at 7.30 am.

Day 88 – Tuesday March 29
This used to be a house, now it’s an office. It’s a 5 minute walk from my house. I’ve been there once for a job interview but since it was a parttime job and I wanted to work fulltime, I didn’t take it. But I would have loved working there.

The monthly photo of our garden. It’s still a mess but we’re waiting for the gardener who comes once a year to do our garden and make it ready for Summer. But there are already some things blooming.
