BADEN-MARATHON 2016

 21/09/2016 This being my 2nd marathon the goal was another PB, hopefully under 4 hrs. Unfortunately I was not fully recovered from a flu. At km 17 you can choose to run the half-marathon and I would have gladly aborted the marathon. But then my wife Conny and a friend were on the course waiting for me and had no mobiles with them… imagine that! I grinded through it and made it in 4 hrs 25 minutes. Looking back I am proud that I did manage to finish.

SCHLUCHSEELAUF 2017

 14/05/2017 I love the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) - nature makes you realise how small and insignificant you are. In a good way. To this day the Schluchseelauf is a personal highlight.

SCHLUCHSEELAUF 2016

 09/05/2016 This easily could have been a PB for me but I was attending a 50 year birthday party the day before and didn‘t feel ok in my stomach. No, NOT because of drinking :-) but something I ate. 5 km to go from the 18 km race I nearly DNF (did not finish) because of a sudden stomach pain. Up to then I was running really good on PB time. You never know how a race will pan out.

ALTSTADTLAUF ETTLINGEN 2014

 30/05/2014 A quick 10 km race, this is different to my usual runs, as I prefer distances starting 18 km / 21 km. Then again you need to train differently for it and it is a nice change to the normal long-distance running routine.

BADEN-MARATHON BUSINESS TEAM  22/09/2013 The race that started it all. I never wanted to run in a race, as I do not feel competitive about running.  But when I was asked to help out my local gym I volunteered for the 14km part of the run. Since then I am hooked. The team marathon divides the course into 21km - 14km - 7km parts. Nice shot from the Schlossgarten in Karlsruhe.  2 of my training partners from Kieser that also did the 14km part of the run.

SCHLUCHSEELAUF 2014

 11/05/2014 Living close to the northern parts of the Black Forest does have it‘s advantages - Schluchsee and the lake are one of the most beautiful places to visit. Great to have a run there, too. A wise choice for a race, as I kept coming back every year since then.
Lovely run through the old city center of  Ettlingen where I went to school.

SWE Halbmarathon Ettlingen 2014

 23/08/2014 This is a tough one. At least if you are now used to go up hill and down and up… 380 meters in height difference might make the trail runners reading this laugh. Being used mainly flat courses I had a hard time running this half-marathon. I enjoyed the course, because it led me through lots of villages and forests I knew from my school days.

Baden Marathon / Halbmarathon 2014

 21/09/2014 My first start at the biggest race in Karlsruhe I opted for doing a half-marathon. At that time running a marathon seemed a bit absurd. Then again you rise with the challenge.

Wings For Life 2015

 03/05/2015 To break the pattern (I did the Bienwald half-marathon again earlier in 2015) I came to notice the Wings For Life run. Instead of knowing the distance you run, you are being chased by a chaser car. The run is done when you are being caught. Mentally a strange but super experience. I did an ok run, me getting to about 21 km if I remember correctly.

BADEN-MARATHON 2015

 21/09/2015 My first ever marathon, I finished in 4 hrs 08 min. My good friend Jörn paced me the last 5 km of the run. I was still tired from the SWE race (see below), a lessen well learned. Successfully running a marathon on my first try was a marvelous experience. Let‘s see how many more will follow.

SWE Halbmarathon Ettlingen 2015

 10/08/2015 I thought it a good idea to do this half-marathon with 380 m height difference as a preparation for my first marathon. Well, let me just say I never did run the SWE again. A lovely course, but it is just 4 weeks before the Baden Marathon. Running the SWE hard would been suffering at the marathon and not being able to obtain a personal best. Which, ultimately, is the goal for each race.
True to his devotion for Canadas greatest, RUSH, Jörn even got a sports shirt from `em. Cool. That‘s just 7km in, and I already look like I‘ve run a long way. Classic Black Forest scenery.

BERGDORFMEILE 2017

 15/07/2017 Right before our door goes the course of the Bergdorfmeile, a new small race of about 8 km. On this short distance it accumulates some height meters and is quiet a challenge. I enjoyed it, sort of, as I train on these paths all the time. Still, 8 km is not my distance.

Baden-Marathon 2017

 17/09/2017 A personal best! My first serious attempt at running sub 4 hrs - all went well for the first 37 km. Then I got a cramp in my right calf and my race strategy couldn‘t be maintained. I finished in 4:04:44, which feels good now. While racing I was a bit disappointed when realising I will miss my goal by  a few minutes. Then again it was a huge relief that my knees and the achilles heels made no problems whatsoever, contrary to the intense training runs.
Nice & smooth. So happy to cross the finish line. Always time to play a guitar solo!
