I started running shortly after I arrived from The Netherlands, in 2011. I was invited to run with the CV Trailrunners by Erica Gratton and I knew that was a great way to explore my new home country that I just moved to, but also to meet new people.
I can easily say that joining CVTR and running the trails has changed my life. It’s the perfect de-stressor for a busy work life and without it I would have never experienced all the beauty the USA has to offer and would have never met my CVTR friends.
As most people, I also started with a ‘couch-to-five-k’ program and increased my miles ever since. Although I prefer the longer distances, I can still enjoy a short run. Since CVTR has members that run any kind of distance, it’s never a problem to find company for my next adventure on the trails.
