After four and a half months of full on training I’ve decided not to run the Amsterdam marathon on October 16th 2016. I’ve learnt a life lesson about the balance between the load and capacity of the body while training for a marathon.
In 2014, when we had just moved to Paris, the marathon passed by our apartment in Rue Saint-Antoine. Seeing all these people swooshing by impressed me so much that I signed-up for the 2015 marathon on the spot. The goal was set, the easy part was over.
