About

I started running back in 2014. My first run (4 Km) was really hard (Because I went out to fast).

I love running. I also love getting to know the limits of my body and mind. This is why I choose to run ultras.

A good friend of mine introduced me to this sport and I couldn’t stop ever since. I’m so thankful to him.

Running gives me so much joy. But I can’t describe the feeling I get on the finish line of an ultra-marathon.

When I’m not running, I work as a Linux Systems Engineer. I always try to keep my mind in an optimistic state, even when it gets hard. I’ve been living as a vegetarian for the past 8 years. If you wanna know more about my nerdy job, visit my other page.
