In 2012, I ran my first marathon in Amsterdam. Being in the Netherlands, it’s a flat course that’s good for beginners. Sometimes, though, the lack of hills is replaced by an abundance of wind. Running a marathon teaches you that you are capable of more than you expect to be able to do.
New York is the furthest I have, at the time of writing, ever travelled for a holiday. I spent 4 days taking in the sights and sounds of New York.
