Beautiful race with a great field. For me the race came too early but it gave a good indication of my shape without running myself into the ground. Time for some mental patching.
Some guys need to say "ik ben den beste" others just need to listen to some nice music ;-)
The last weeks were very hard for me with the unexpected passing of our CEO Luc De Proost. We will never forget him! For me personally this news hit me hard and it had a lot of impact on my own work. Obviously it's important to be loyal to your organisation in exceptional situations like this.
In terms of running my coach Salavarda and me have only two goals, that's running a fast marathon in April and October. All my training and races will be in function of these two marathons. Next sunday I will run the half marathon in Egmond (NL) for testing my current shape.
To conclude I wish for you a sporty and an injury free 2013. Greetings Lander
