1/2 marathon

Today I ran the Eindhoven 1/2 marathon, 21 km in 1hour 51.48 minutes (it means I left 60% of the 6800 runners behind me).
I've done better in the past, but I have been fighting off an ankle injury since a year now. At last it's gone.
Running is my other time consuming hobby. I'm doing it for thirty years now; nowadays about 25-30km/week. And each sunday morning on the Brunssumer heide with my athletics club, STAP-Brunssum.
Sketching and running does not go well together: once you run you don't stop to draw. I personally don't like this sketch so much, too static and unbalanced, but as illustration for the occasion it's OK.
It's the start of the STAP run in Brunssum, held a week ago, organized by my club.
Vandaag de halve marathon van Eindhoven gelopen in 1uur 52min.
Hardlopen is mijn andere hobby, ik loop 3 keer per week, ook bij de vereniging AV STAP Brunssum.
De schets is de start van de STAP loop in Brunssum, vorige week zaterdag.

Good for you, Rene! Yes, very hard to sketch while you are running.

Maybe I should give it a try, I wonder what kind of wobbly drawing would come out of it ;)
