Hotel Director Jessica Completes Ultramarathon

Hotel Director Jessica Completes Ultramarathon

Rotterdam‘s Hotel Director Jessica Schumann did well in her ultramarathon which was held last month.

She finished the 45 mile (73KM) in 9:53:12 and ended as 27th in her age group. Here is a photo from Jessica during her brutal race – well done Jessica!


As far as my race is concerned, that is scheduled for tomorrow, the 29th of June. Fingers crossed.
The National Park organization has cancelled the race permit; because of the excessive heat warning this weekend they don’t allow the race to take place in their park.

The race will now take place outside of Las Vegas – forecast calls for 120 degrees, up to 129 Fahrenheit in Death Valley….Warm enough to run 50 miles. I will let you know the outcome!

Bert van Mackelenbergh is Veendam’s hotel director (currently on vacation).

    Wij komen zojuist van het schip en als ik dit geweten had ja dan hadden wij vrijdagmiddag tijdens de Mariner’s lunch symbolisch haar hand kunnen schudden.
    Dat zij zo trots naast de kapitein stiond begrijpen wij nu helemaal.
