I hear you thinking ‘Den What’? Is that a place or a city? And where is it located? In case you never heard of Den Helder before – and I can’t blame you for that if you don’t live in Holland – it’s a town located beside the coast in the Upper Northwest of Holland, about 1,5-hour drive away from where I live. Last Sunday, the yearly half marathon event of Den Helder was held, and I decided very last minute to participate. I knew, that it would be the last chance to participate in a race before heading to New Zealand, so I thought, why not. Moreover, it was also a nice opportunity to test my training results so far. And I can tell you, a test it was, for sure!
