About


I am a father, husband and software professional, who grew up in Northern Germany, moved to the Unites States and picked up running 18 years ago and ultra running 13 years ago. In my quest to continually explore new places and find my physical and mental limits, I have completed 150+ ultra marathon distance events.


After experiencing multiple DVTs and bilateral pulmonary emboli as a result of a traumatic ankle injury in 2012, I found a renewed appreciation for adventure and life in general. I now try to raise awareness about blood clots and clotting disorders especially as it pertains to endurance athletes.


Running highlights include completing the Everest 100 Mile Trail Race, the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (3x), the Moab 240 Miler, the Tahoe 200 and most recently the Bob Graham Round along with various mountain 100 milers.

In 2019, I became the 41st person in 30+ years to complete “The Last Great Race of Ultra Running,” which consists of running the six oldest 100 milers in the US over the course of 14 weeks, Old Dominion 100, Western States 100, Vermont 100, Angeles Crest 100, Leadville Trail 100 and Wasatch Front 100.

 

This blog mostly chronicles my long distance adventures and endurance races along with the occasional gear review as well as some articles about how to train and plan for these types of adventures. I hope you enjoy.
