Light footed: sometimes things suddenly are easy!

6 days ago


I noticed it immediately when I ran out the door this morning: I was light footed!

Instead of my usual slogging across the street, my steps were light and airy. What a wonderful feeling!

Usually running is hard work for me
I almost couldn't believe my luck, and it made me realize that most of my runs are quite hard work. With my mind egging my body on: 'Go on then, lazybones! You can do it!' and my body angrily going: 'Yeah, yeah, hold your horses. I'm doing it, aren't I, but I don't have to like it!'

But now my body was enthusiastically carrying me along, and I almost felt as if I had to reign it in a little. After all I had many miles to go before I could sleep.

Can motherhood be like that?
Why can't motherhood be like that? Sometimes I find it hard going indeed, especially now, after weeks and weeks off summer vacation.

But today's run has given me hope!

If it can happen during a run, it can happen during parenting.

Running during vacation: how one person's goal is another person's dead end

2 weeks ago


View from the top of the dune in Schoorl
One year during summer vacation, we exchanged our comfortable home for a, too small, caravan. The kind where you can't swing a cat, should you want to. However, it did give me the wonderful opportunity to expand my running horizons!

Running from Tuitjenhorn to Schoorl
After all: my legs will carry me only so far. But with a generous lift by car, suddenly I could run from Tuitjenhorn to Schoorl!


I went where I had never gone before!
So I shouted a goodbye to my children and the camping mascotte, and fled the scene. I was quite excited, because I was going where I had never gone before, exploring strange and new worlds, and I have the unfortunate habit of getting lost, even when I'm exploring the beaten path.

But without too much trouble I reached the little town of Schoorl, known for it's big sand dune, and my goal for the day. Because at the foot of the sand dune there's this lovely restaurant where they serve great cups of coffee.

Asking for directions
But having reached Schoorl I succeeded in missing the big sand dune. Luckily I found a friendly lady who gave me directions:


'You take a right, then you take another right, and then you run till you can't anymore, because the sand dune is a dead end.'

That gave me something to think about:

Isn't it strange how one person's goal is another person's dead end?



The certainty of running

3 weeks ago


I don't always find it easy to get myself out the door to go for a run, but I always do.

Because I know for certain I won't regret it.

Motherhood and life don't come with many certainties 
And since motherhood doesn't come with many certainties, except the certainty of love, I just lóve certainties.

I don't think there are many runners out there who say: 'Gee, I wish I hadn't gone out for my run.'

So if you'll excuse me: I'm going out to take my happy run!
