THE SATERDAY MORNING RUN

My husband was running for Open Doors: a beautiful run through the woods of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. Both paved and unpaved roads. The 10K race distance is a very popular one for local races, fun runs, and charity runs. It was warm, a bit chaotic because the signs were not clear. But the mood was jovial. My husband love running!

AMERONGSE BOSLOOP

Vanmorgen,  zaterdag 30 juni vond de eerste editie plaats van de Amerongse Bosloop voor Open Doors. Een prachtige loop over de Utrechtse Heuvelrug. Zowel over verharde als onverharde wegen lopen. De Halve Marathon heeft zelfs ruim 200 hoogtemeters. Een flinke uitdaging dus. Mijn man nam de 10 km voor zijn rekening. Het was een beetje chaotisch. Spoorzoeken zelfs... omdat er geen duidelijke wegwijzers hingen. Toch een gezellige sfeer. 





I was just in time to see him finish. On the way back I took some pictures of the area around our village. On the second photo you can see my husband's bike. Very old one. This bike was once from my husband's grandfather...

FOTO'S OMGEVING

Terwijl mijn man ging uitlopen, fietste ik alvast naar huis. En nam wat foto's in de omgeving van ons dorp. Ik kwam langs de fiets van mijn man. Deze fiets is echt zo oud. Hij is nog van onze opa geweest. En rijdt nog prima!

  4. Very pretty landscape. I love the orange photo, it's so vibrant. That's pretty cool that your husband still rides his grandfather's bike, very impressive I may say.

    Enjoy the day!

  5. I have walked all my life and still do. I have never been a runner but I know that people can become almost addicted to it. A good addiction I am sure!
