Two brave CIEE students and two Dutch CIEE friends and sports men ran the Zandvoort Circuit Run last Sunday. As I layered up to meet them at the trainstation I already felt for them. It is 1 or 2 degrees celcius here with a very cold wind! Oh, Dutch spring, we never knwo what to expect. Once I met the students they surprised me with their positive attitudes. "When I woke up, I thought: let's go for it": said Joanna. And CIEE student Charlie wanted to take it easy and see how he did, and turned out to be the fastest of the bunch! I. am. so. impressed.
A very big THANK YOU to the organisation of the Zandvoort Circuit Run: Le Champion, who made it possible for us to participate and made sure everything was very well organised. A very Dutch activity!
