I started running when I was a teenager, and I have loved it ever since. I’d go running because the sun was out, because there was a nice strong wind, or because I just needed to clear my head. Few things help to clear my mind as running a nice round in nature. Within 10 minutes from my house is a lake, and running at its shores make me feel so free!
At a winter’s day with very moody weather, I met Goudje at this lake. We agreed to meet there for a photoshoot, to provide Goudje with pictures for the branding of her running therapy business. She too knows the mental and physical health benefits of running and integrates that in her work as a running therapist and coach. She helps people who are facing a lot of stress, a burn-out or depression.
I really enjoyed meeting Goudje. She’s so kind, open minded and inspiring. She shows real interest in the people around her, and helping people seems to be a part of her personality. She inspired me businesswise, but also running-wise: after a long break from running I put back on my running shoes!
