One of the privileges of being a member of the administrative commission of the sports event organisation ‘Le Champion’ is that I am invited for sport events like the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. A yearly great event where you personally can set records, be an enthusiastic spectator and / or meeting interesting (new) relatives. Or a combination of these of course.
A picture of the start:
The volunteers are working weeks / days in advance to make this event happen for more than 40.000 athletes. Therefor sincere and great appreciation for them! And it pays off! A new track record was realized by Daniel Wanjiru in the time of 2:05:20 (average speed 20.2 km/h!) on the marathon. Incredible! Congrats!
