As late as at the age of 40 I took up running. I started with a few kilometers along the river Elbe in my hometown Dresden. Joining the running group Dresdner Durchläufer I set myself higher goals - my first marathon.


In 2005 I for the first time crossed the finishing line of the Berlin marathon. I finished six more marathons in the following years. For my 50th birthday I even run a 50k. After 05:27 hours I finished the ultra marathon in Bottrop, totally exhausted but happy.


Nowadays I just run to relax and enjoy the physical exercise, nature and the free flow of thoughts. In addition I do yoga.
