The love/marathonsprookje of Tineke Vanhaecke and Tom Janssens started a few years ago when they got to know each other on the football field of Eksaarde. Tineke had just finished the marathon of Berlin deep and infected Tom with the marathonvirus. Without realizing it, both were at that time not only looking for a new PR, the love for the ' walk brought them personally closer to each other. Since a few years the two a couple. “The idea to marry voice for longer through our heads,” says Tom, who last Sunday just after a heavy and icy marathon by the knees went for Tineke to the question of his life. “Only sheaves we have that time, but what for us. I waited the appropriate time. Secretly, I dreamed of becoming Tineke in marriage to questions after the New York marathon. That is her favorite marathon, but New York, you do not run just like that. In addition, I ran last Sunday my twentieth marathon. The symbolism if you want.”Spijkenisse
Spijkenisse. “Spijkenisse, of all places,” laughs Tom. “It may sound crazy, but one way or another, it felt good. Spijkenisse is a fine marathon and Tineke was there all day to support me.” And so walked to Tom's three hours long, with a wedding ring in his back pocket. It gave him no new PR, but it was an incredible story to tell to the grandchildren. Because Tineke said: “Yes, I want it!”
“The most beautiful victory of my marathoncarrière”, winks Tom.
And she walked happily ever after.
