I started running at 7:39 in the morning. After leaving Bunschoten the sun rose above the horizon and I was greeted by a spectacular view of the fields. Running was reasonably smooth up to my drop bag at 47km. After replenishing I suddenly realized that it still was a long way to go, and I was feeling pretty bad. I tried to push through this but the tempo obviously suffered a bit.
After passing Veenendaal and refilling the water once again (couldn't find the tap at first, hence the two little detours), I found the right mindset again. I managed to push on to a final time of 8:02:57.
If someone wants to give this route a go: bring GPS! There's limited markings available
