The first half was very wet but also very beautiful. Queen’s day was amazing on Friday, great to see a nation come together and enjoy themselves in such a free a relaxed manner. I have loved learning your culture so far and tomorrow cannot come quick enough for me.
The second part of todays marathon was stunning and on very quiet roads. The architecture in the Netherlands is beautiful and thankfully the land is very flat!
It is so nice to have the challenge underway and everyone I have spoken with so far has been very friendly, I even seen one family on the river Amstel on a boat playing the bagpipes! They could not believe I was Scottish, let along running to Barcelona!
