Welcome!

Thanks for swinging by!

I'm on a mission to inspire and guide you to be a better runner!

After having health issues from chronic deseases for several years I set myself the goal to run a half marathon while lying on a hospital bed with an infusion in my arm. Since that point about ten years ago I'm a regular runner and participated in several marathons and even ultra trail races in the mountains. Running became my passion and kept me healthy over the years both physically and mentally. In my blog I'd like to give you some inspiration to follow me on an awesome running journey and share with you my experiences and all I learned along the way.
