Fast running in Tilburg Ten Miles

September 2nd 2007 - After missing the World Championships in Osaka, Kamiel did not mourn for a long time but quickly changed gears to focus on his next goal: the Amsterdam Marathon on October 21st.

Besides training, of course, the first steps towards the marathon were set in Tilburg where Kamiel ran the classic ten mile race. Kamiel took the lead right away to make sure he would not stumble or fall in the winding beginning of the course. It wasn't until about 6k the following group of about ten Africans joined Kamiel. In later stages the pace went up and down and Kamiel was able to stay in the leading group. He finished fourth in a time of 46:44, said to be the fastest time in history by a Dutchman on a certified course.

"I am very happy about my performance today" Kamiel said about his race. "It did not feel right not to be present at the World Champs, but I simply did not run well enough during the track season. It seems I am on the right track for Amsterdam by now. Hopefully I will stay healthy, because injuries are the causes that hold me back the most during this stage of my career. But today I simply felt good and enjoyed running in Tilburg."

Hoi Kamiel, Toch wel handig die website van jou; ik heb af en toe gekeken naar de wereldkampioenschappen, maar hoorde je naam niet genoemd worden. Ik lees nu dus dat je je niet geplaatst had. Frustrerend dat je eerst een wereldrecord moet lopen wil je worden uitgezonden (ik weet niet wat precies wat de limiet was, maar ik vind het wel een erg strenge selectienorm als ik lees dat de tijd die de winnaar liep ook niet voldoende zou zijn geweest om uitgezonden te worden!) Lastig ook dat je de geest wel wil, maar je je lichaam moet inhouden om heel te blijven voor de wedstrijden. Maar ik heb er alle vertrouwen in dat je je lichaam goed genoeg kent om het tot een goed resultaat te brengen. Nu nog even een beetje gunstige weersomstandigheden en een paar goede hazen en dan gaan met die banaan in Amsterdam!!! Ik zal in ieder geval voor je duimen... groeten ook aan Claartje Gerald
