After my last half ended in a DNF and being so busy that I basically only trained the last 3 weeks for this race, I wasn’t sure how this race would go. But I just decided to go and see how far I would get. I knew I wasn’t going to run a PR with just 3 weeks of training, only goal was to finish (if possible in under 3 hours) and if it would end in another DNF, so be it. Website of the race said “there is no time limit for the half marathon”, so that sounded promising.
It’s been a difficult couple months of running and I have my first half marathon coming up. This race seemed like a good training run and I wasn’t aiming for a particular time. The Leiden Ladiesrun is a small race. Around a 1000 women had the choice of running one 5k loop or two times the same loop to make it a 10k.
