Besides Bart our other colleagues Harmen and Paul were also near the marathon. They were visiting the expo of the Berlin Marathon. At this place, the marathon participants can pick up their race number and buy the newest running gadgets. Harmen: “The vibe was great! We both enjoyed meeting our relationships, new people, timers and other suppliers and discussing market developments.” “And of course I encouraged my colleague Bart during his marathon. During that, a new world record has almost been set and I have seen the millionth finisher, the Canadian Ali Crandall, crossing the finish line. It was a nice experience!
“The people are so excited! It is special to see how happy and proud they are with their medals.
At that point you remember what you are doing it for.”
