My running year 2015 could not have ended on a better note. While it had been a truly amazing year of running adventures, I have had my share of disappointing finishes from the 5K all the way to the 68 mile distance between March and December of this year. The year had started off extremely well at Pistol Ultra 50K (4th OA, 1st Master and PR) and Mountain Mist 50K (course PR by almost 90 min) in January and at Mt. Cheaha 50K (6th OA) in February. Unfortunately, I also sustained an injury to my previously reconstructed ankle bone and tendon at the Cheaha race, which put a serious dent in my training, from which I never really felt fully recovered, i.e. I lost the little pace I had and never really regained it.

UTMB had been on my bucket list pretty much as soon as I discovered an interest in ultra marathons and trail running a just short five years ago. What started as a dream to once return to the region I had visited so many times as a young boy during regular annual family trips to the Alps turned into reality almost by accident.
