Yes! I did it!! I ran a new PB 5000m sub 16'😄 💪
Today (yesterday already) started early volunteering for the Nijmegen Global Athletics. A whole day driving around in Nijmegen picking up international athletes and bring them to the track. 🚗😊 Great to get to know some of the professional athletes and watch them in their races. The Haasjes in the 'up the clock' series did a great job too! The NGA is such a nice event with all those different athletes👍😀
And then it was my turn. I almost forgot that I had to run myself as well. 😅 After such a long day, I didn't feel too confident about the race. My head wasn't in running mood, so I did not know what to expect. I started the race quite relaxed with lap times of 78'/77' ⌚, but half way I increased my speed. In the last 200m I wasn't on schedule to run sub 16 min, but I still believed in it. I gave everything I had left. The last 200m were in less then 30' and therefore I finished in 15:59.06. 😄 Woohooo!!! My faith got rewarded and I achieved my goal! 🏆😆
Tomorrow I have to get up early driving the athletes back to Schiphol. So I'm off to bed and my alarm is set!
