Bergsportawards 2013

At the moment it's pretty quite here. I am training a lot to prepare for upcoming season, which means no big events or outdoor climbing trips for now. Training is a lot of fun though and I feel that my strength is coming back again.

Although there are no competitions, that doesn't mean there are no events at all. Last week, the NKBV (the Dutch climbing and mountaineering  federation) organized the  Bergsportawards 2013. I was nominated in the category "Most memorable sportclimbing achievement" for being the first Dutch female to climb 8b and 8b+ last year. It came pretty unexpected (to me at least) that I won the award. Thanks!

Besides the new edition of BLOK was published that same day. It was super cool to find myself on the cover!  There is an interview with me inside. Not only about the routes I climbed recently, but also more about the way I think about climbing, how I train, eat and recover and much more.
