Running since: Ever since I can remember. Longer distances since 2014.
First race ever: As a four year old, I had my first race, a 50 m sprint.
Why did you start running: I don't think I can name one reason as it has always been part of my life. But in my twenties I intensified running and started running in the mountains and Ultras. Today running is much more than just sports, it is a way of life.
Best race ever: Transvulcania 2018, when Jule, Anthony, Thomas and I missed the start at the Fuencaliente Lighthouse at 6 o’clock. So we had our own very private and calm start (I guess 20 minutes later) and the race ends up as one of my best.
Favorite race event: There are so many. Transvulcania and UTMB are one of my favorites because of the tingling atmosphere.
The good: Running is a universe that you can never finally discover. Like life, running is constantly changing so it never becomes boring.
The bad: Stomach issues
The ugly: Falling asleep while running
