I’m Sharon, 33 years old and a mother of two daughters. I work as a Release Train Engineer at a network company which is responsible for the distribution of energy such as electricity, (bio)gas and heat. 

I played korfball since I was 7 years old and always hated running. In the summer of 2018 I started running to build up my fitness level after a back injury. And from one day to the next I fell in love with running. In September I ran a 5k and in May 2019 I ran my first half marathon. After that half marathon I decided to quit korfball and focus on my new love; running.  

"You don’t need talent, consistency is key! Training every day, year in year out, makes a great athlete!"
"I can run whenever I want, how much I want and where I want."
