In October, 2011, I ran my very first 8K in this event.
This was my first real running goal, which I trained 8 weeks for. My training begun literally on the day I decided that I will start to run: 8th of August, 2011.

on the first day of my 8 weeks of training
to run my first 8K!
Running my first 8K, going inside the Olympic Stadium of Amsterdam to reach the finish line of my first running adventure was the most memorable experience in my life.
Almost to the finish line of my first 8K!
The year that followed, I ran my first Amsterdam full marathon - yes, 5 times 8 kilometer and plus some! 3 weeks after I finished my first ever marathon in Berlin.
It was a triumphant return to & a warm reunion with the Olympic Stadium. :)
Perhaps this week, I will finally manage to do a recap of both experiences! My procrastination in doing recaps is monumental. But that is another blog topic for another day!
With this bog, I simply wanted to share something "new", that I hope will become a tradition.
Contrary to my stressful habit in the last 2 years of last minute choice of what to wear in running events - today, I actually did a "dress-run" for what I am going to wear on Sunday!
Theater lovers, are familiar with the term: dress rehearsals.
I love play in words, and so from now on for fun, I will post blogs (this is how I motivate myself to create a positive habit!) about my "dress-run".
