Unless to write about them explosive and coordination sports never were my cup of tea. Where resistance and endurance are important, things mostly are going a little bit better for me. For some years, I participated cycle-races on the road, in track and field and even on rolls. Nowadays I'm participating some running races each year. I also wrote several books and articles about the history of sports and leisure time, especially about the early period of biking and bicycle racing.

Marathon runners and organizers, don't forget me: for the magazine Runner's World, I'm composing the Belgian marathon rankings. Please send me before December 15 your best net marathon time, with place and date of this marathon. This way, your name will be included in our tables, if, sirs, you completed this marathon within 3 hours. Ladies, for you 4 hours is the limit.
