I am a happy Brabant girl, who swapped going to the pub for running. After I beat breast cancer in 2011, I made a change of direction. It seems it was a good decision as I’m still very passionate about it. Hopefully, there will be many more great times over the various distances; I actually enjoy all distances. I am now back on the road after an injury. I am very happy that Etixx has continued to believe in me, and with their products I am convinced that there are still many good things ahead in terms of running. I am very grateful for this wonderful support, it helps me to recover faster and be able to train harder so I can reach my goals.


My disciplines

  • Running -> Atletiekvereniging de Keien (De Keien Athletics Club)
  • Cycling
  • Fitness


Number of hours’ training per week

6 hours 
 

"Never Give UP!
Keep Moving Forward!"

My favourite Etixx products

I use the Magnesium Instant Sticks almost every day for good recovery, along with the Recovery Shake PRO LINE. Collagen Complex is also an essential part of this. Since my injury, I use this either in my shake or in a glass of water to maintain my tendons with the right protein and vitamin C. For strenuous training, I also use the Arginine 1000 pills so that I get less tired.


My greatest sporting achievements 

Silver medal in the National Championship half marathon women’s masters (2018)


My personal records

  • 3000m: 00:10:35
  • 5km:00:18:45
  • 10km: 00:38:29
  • 15km: 01:00.07
  • 21km: 01:29.45


My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021

I would love to run in another National Championship again. On the track or on the road for a half marathon. Unfortunately there is no date set yet.

I am 21 years old and I have been practicing athletics since I was 12 years old. I am a qualified primary school teacher since June 2021 and I try to combine sport and work as much as possible. I am hard-working and determined, and I always give my best whether it is in training, in competition or even in my personal life. Apart from athletics, I also enjoy cooking, baking and walking.

Athletics (3000 m steeplechase and cross)

I am Jeroen D'hoedt and my main sport is athletics (middle distance). In addition, I also enjoy a huge number of other sports including cycling, tennis, mountain biking, etc. I do these sports mainly in the ‘off season’ or as an alternative due to injury. The nice thing is that Etixx has the right products for each of these sports in its range, ensuring optimum recovery between training sessions. I have also been able to take part in a few Etixx events such as the Ghent-Wevelgem Cyclo, a fantastic experience!
