Monthly review march

With the transition from winter to spring and from winter time to summer time, March also marked the change from indoor season to outdoor season. The month still began with NSK Indoor in Apeldoorn. With about 20 participants we colored the grandstand and the track blue. New PRs were achieved and debuts at the races. Also the 4*400 relay team, consisting of Diewertje, Fleur, Rosa and Rixt won a silver medal.

A week and a half later it was time for the monthly get-together in Tram 13. The theme was kakkers, so the hair was combed into a middle parting and sweaters were buttoned up.

On the weekend of March 16, the alternative training weekend took place at our own track in Groningen. The whole day could be trained and we ended with a barbecue and a pub quiz.

There was not much time to recover from this training weekend, because on Wednesday, March 20, it was time for the one and only FeestCie sports spectacle. There was volleyball, basketball and soccer. All in all, another sporting activity.

To continue on the athletic path in this month, we left March 23 for Enschede with as many as four teams for NSK Ekiden. They competed for the best team performance on the marathon with 6 people. In the end, three teams won prizes: 'Loopgroep Kech & Co' finished in third place with the men. Among the women, the 'Vitalis Women' team bested second place and 'Vitalis More Women' third. The day ended in pajamas at the pajama party. So, all in all, a successful day.

March ended on the 30th with our own Easter Bunny Cup, organized by the BaanCie. Especially at the 5000 meters Vitalis was very present, but also at the other events blue shirts were very visible.

So March was another successful month full of sporting events!
