I am Dominique, founder of this site, proud father and husband, data analyst, Dutchman living in Australia.
And I am a runner.
I have always been active in sports. My youth in Holland was dominated by soccer.
Later I stopped playing soccer and got out of shape a bit.
Until I discovered the joy of running !

Why do I run ?
What I love about running is how it relaxes me.
It keeps me fit, physically and mentally.
Life can be stressful.
Juggling money and needs and wants.
Two angels of children (see the pictures) who can sometimes turn into demons.
Skipping lunch break and instead having lunch behind the desk.
But all of that is forgotten when I go outside for a relaxing Sunday morning long run on the nature trail close by. Bit of a breeze, sun shining and a smile on my face.
I love working out, getting tired and forgetting about everything.
It's meditation without crossing the legs or closing the eyes.

Why do I write about running
Nothing is more satisfying than getting a note in my inbox saying :
I really love your website. Thank you for all the helpful advice.
All the best,
A Beginning Runner"
I regularly get messages like that. I am really lucky I stumbled upon Site Build It!
Site Build It! is all about taking the tech out of making a website. About turning a passion into a business.
About building a website by normal human beings.
The beauty is, everybody has got a passion. You too. Whether it is running, photography, pruning roses or mathematics.
I have turned my passion into a business.
There is no reason you can't do the same. Just a thought. Think about it.

What is a Dutchman doing in Australia
The short answer to that ? My wife.
She is Australian.
We met in 1997 while being exchange students in Colorado. We were friends there.
A year and a half later I went on holiday to Australia. Three weeks later I went back to Holland. Fully entwined in a long distance relationship.
I don't know if you have ever been involved in a long distance relationship, but I can assure you, it's a painful, complicated business. Which usually ends in tears.
Luckily not this one though as you can see by the pictures on this page !
We are very happy Down Under in sunny Australia.
Enjoying life with our little family.
Well, you know a little bit more about me and my family now. I hope you enjoy my site.
If there is anything I can help you with, let me know. Contact me via

I am there for you.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
