>General Running>Great hospitality for runners in Crowne Plaza Amsterdam
Just came back from a nice run while on vacation in Amsterdam. Was pleasantly surprised in the lobby to be greeted by the concierge with a "runner's package" consisting of a fresh towel, a protein shake, a smoothie and a note saying:
"Hope you had a fun run around town. Please enjoy this complimentary protein on us"
Get ready for my 2nd Boston Marathon
No race goals, just stay healthy and work on flexibility and strength.
Really nice touch! I've never heard anyone mention that happening to them - ever! What a creative way to make your guest feel special!
Go as long as you can, and then take another more step.
I've gone running in Vondelpark there--nice.
Wonderful city. Great people. Have to watch out for the bikes!
Almost got run over a fews times (my own negligence).
Loved seeing people riding their bikes to work in suits and nice dresses, briefcases in their baskets.
