My name is Desirée and I completed the bachelor “International Business and Languages” at the Avans University in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. As part of my bachelor, I followed the course “Trendwatching” at the Fontys University in Tilburg, the Netherlands. This course is the primary reason I started this blog, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
I like sports a lot, that’s why after a while I decided to focus this blog on this particular subject. Since January 2013 I’m part of the Rockcity Rollers Eindhoven roller-derby league and better-known as #213 Dropdead Desi. Except playing roller-derby I also enjoy running mud- and obstacle runs. It started out with the Army Urban Run and before I knew it I found myself registered for a lot more and part of Dutch Mud Men.
Pushing my limits is my goal and I challenge myself by running further at each run. It started with 5k, then 8, followed by 9, then smashed a 15k, and achieved a 17k. Keep in mind these are no regular runs. Next challenge? A half-marathon. If I can smash a 17k dirt run, I can complete a 21k, right?
