The first weekend of September is always the time the Singelloop of hometown Enschede is happening. Exactly 5 mile around the city center is a fast track for athletes from all around the area.
Titia is reporting her race: ‘I felt good but also knew I often make the mistake to start too fast. I slowed down after the first 500m and thought I had my ‘pace’. Later on I found out that this pace was actually still too fast for me. At km 3, not even half way down, I felt the energy floating away. After I had slowed down a bit my pace, I could continue in that pace till the end. I still had a personal record on this parcours, but next time I need to be a bit smarter!’
