When and why did you start running?

The last few years I ran a lot on asphalt, because I did the Ironman where I had to run on flat ground. Last year I ran my first 50k race, it’s called the Großglockner Ultra Trail. It felt so good running in the mountains. From that moment on I knew that I preferred trail running more than running on asphalt. You can run everywhere and anytime. That’s what I love most.

Describe your ideal race or adventure challenge

I love to be outside and to see new places and areas. It’s always so good to run a race through beautiful nature… This year I ran the Transalpinerun – it was my biggest adventure challenge and a lifetime experience. Lovely people, perfect organisation, 7 days and an awesome teammate were the summary of an ideal race week.
My adventure challenge for the future is definitely a 100k run in a few years.

Tell us about your favourite trail

I really prefer technical running terrain with lots of tricky things, including elevation.

What has been your biggest running / adventure challenge to date?

As I said before the Transalpinerun in September 2016 was my biggest adventure challenge so far. I would definitely like to run it again in a few years.

During downhill training I fell often in the last years ….

What advice would you give to a new trail runner?

Go outside and see the beauty of nature during trail running! Feel the fresh energy you will have after a trail run.

What is your favourite bit of running kit, and why?

I really love the Dynafit MS Feline Vertical, because this shoe is very light with a perfect grip.
And fore sure my running skirts from Dynafit – for girls only. 😉

Go outside and see the beauty of nature during trail running!

What challenges / races / adventures are you planning for the coming year?

To be honest I am a ski-mountaineer – so I will plan my races in spring after the winter season is over.

 Finally, What do you get up to when you’re not running or adventuring?

I am a law student, so I have lots of things to study.
