Sjoukje van den Boom
I am a happy Brabant girl, who swapped going to the pub for running. After I beat breast cancer in 2011, I made a change of direction. It seems it was a good decision as I’m still very passionate about it. Hopefully, there will be many more great times over the various distances; I actually enjoy all distances. I am now back on the road after an injury. I am very happy that Etixx has continued to believe in me, and with their products I am convinced that there are still many good things ahead in terms of running. I am very grateful for this wonderful support, it helps me to recover faster and be able to train harder so I can reach my goals.

My favourite Etixx products
I use the Magnesium Instant Sticks almost every day for good recovery, along with the Recovery Shake PRO LINE. Collagen Complex is also an essential part of this. Since my injury, I use this either in my shake or in a glass of water to maintain my tendons with the right protein and vitamin C. For strenuous training, I also use the Arginine 1000 pills so that I get less tired.
My greatest sporting achievements
Silver medal in the National Championship half marathon women’s masters (2018)

My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021
I would love to run in another National Championship again. On the track or on the road for a half marathon. Unfortunately there is no date set yet.
