How to make a relationship work when you’re both pursuing a PhD and are separated by the Atlantic Ocean? By working out together and train for the New York Marathon! After moving to Boston to do research at the Massachusetts General Hospital, running a major Marathon in the US together stood high on our to-do list! Through Sietske her research at the Beatrix Children's Hospital, we received the opportunity to experience this amazing event, while simultaneously raising money for charity! Contributing to the improvement of child healthcare in the Netherlands through sports makes us enormously driven! If you want to support us on this journey and at the same time make a valuable contribution to a beautiful cause, we and the Beatrix Children's Hospital foundation would be extremely grateful!
