Running since: 2012
First race ever: München Marathon (2010), 3:48
Why did you start running: In 2010 my uncle, a runner, asked me if i wanted to run a marathon with him and i said yes. This was my first contact with this wonderful sport. But then it took antoher two years until i fully committed myself to running. Since then it has been an integral part of my life and i love it.
Your best race ever: Südthüringen Trail (2017) Mozart100 (2018) SaintéLyon (2019)
Favorite race event: I don’t really have any favourite races. I like fast 10k’s as well as (half) marathons and (ultra) trails.
The good: It helps clear your mind and stay healthy. Sometimes it can change your life.
The bad: For me sometimes stomach problems during ultras. And of course injuries.
The ugly: The inner voice that asks you why you are doing all this (sometimes during lows in a race).
Your favorite Willpower item: RUN TILL DEATH Hoodie
Top5 Running Songs: I don‘t hear any music while running but this is my alltime top5:
- Maroon - Stillborn
