The Amsterdam Marathon is in the books. I had a blast, I really did have a blast, especially the first 20 miles before the wheels came off a little bit. The Amsterdam Marathon course is known for how flat it is, and usually good weather, which was the case today in the 44th edition of the marathon. The Amsterdam Marathon was a HUGE learning moment for me, as this was my first road marathon, much different than what I’m used to racing out on the trails and mountains of Colorado. I will walk away with many great memories and lessons from this journey in the Amsterdam marathon 2019, and look forward to the next challenge, which just over the horizon.
