When I started researching how to train for the marathon with the goal of breaking 3 hours, I came across a lot of posts from people who talked about negotiating time away from their families to train. At the time, I had all the time in the world to train, and didn’t give too much thought to what I would do in that situation.

Since then, I managed to achieve my sub 3 goal at the Berlin marathon in 2016 and the Amsterdam marathon in 2017.

Recently I have been running with a tiny running buddy, who joined me on my runs until 36 weeks pregnant, before she came into the world at 37 weeks.

My next challenge will be balancing being a mum to a young baby while training for another marathon.
