With Move The Earth I ran, with only a backpack, in 72 marathons from Gennep to Palermo to spread the power of positivity. For the people that are having a hard time.

Meanwhile I ran for love, I will tell. more about that later. And on the 5th of may 2020, I will run from Spijkenisse to Zuiderstrand in The Hague. To let my past flow on the waves of the sea, to be able to sail a new course. And to experience and share the freedom on the way that we know for 75 years. Especially now.
