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.

  • Running -> Atletiekvereniging de Keien (De Keien Athletics Club)

"Never Give UP!
Keep Moving Forward!"

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 personal records

  • 3000m: 00:10:35
  • 5km:00:18:45
  • 10km: 00:38:29
  • 15km: 01:00.07
  • 21km: 01:29.45


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.

Trail running, running, cycling, and triathlon

Sport has been a part of my life since I was a child. When I discovered trail running through my climbing partner at the end of 2015, this sport grew into my biggest passion next to cycling. Covering ultra-distances over inhospitable terrain. Overcoming yourself, nature and the elements after an endless battle. Finishing a challenging trail run or skyrace gives me great satisfaction. Running gives me the faith and mental strength to keep going at all times. Both on a professional, personal and sports level. Etixx is an important link in this chain. You find the necessary willpower, determination and physical capability within yourself. But having the right nutrition before, during and after exercise can sometimes be the key to success.

Running

I am primarily someone who doesn't give up easily and who sees everything positively. In addition to running for myself recreationally (60-100 km/week), I am also Charlotte Van Hese’s trainer. The aim is to make her a real top athlete without her losing the pleasure of running. The Etixx products are a fantastic asset for my (now much less) injury-prone body. I am very proud to be a part of this top team!
