PLANET OVER PLASTIC

Unfortunately, of the 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste produced since the 1950s only 9% has been recycled and another 12% incinerated. The rest has been dumped in our environment and could fill an area 70 metres deep and 57 square kilometres in size, which equals the size of Manhattan.

EVERYBODY'S EVEREST

Two years ago, I had witnessed the start of the Ultra-Trail Du Mont Blanc. I left Chamonix with the goal to run the epic race in 2018. It became my dream and I turned the journey towards it into my personal ascend of Mount Everest. A few weeks ago, I signed up and I read about the opportunity to support a charitable organisation, as part of the admission and registration process. While running more often than not is an individual sport, I like to add a social team element to my sport. I want to use my undertakings as an outlet to mobilize people and to open their eyes for important issues.

OCEANIC GLOBAL X EIGER ULTRA-TRAIL

We are a few hours away from the start of this year’s Eiger Ultra-Trail. It is one of the most epic races in the calendar and passes along the infamous Eiger Nordwand. The trail measures 101 kilometres and holds over 6700 positive meters of altitude in hand. Whilst Marathon Des Sables was a challenge in its own way, the Eiger Ultra-Trail will be the most demanding race I will have competed in to date. It is a stunning course that guides us through the Swiss Alps and along some of the most beautiful trails in Europe.

AN INDIVIDUAL TEAMSPORT

First and foremost, thank you, thank you all so much for having read, shared or even donated to my cause. It was my first time to organize a fund raiser as such and I had no idea how it would turn out. In the end, we were able to raise a total of €805.00 as a collective, of which I am very proud and thankful for, indeed. It shows what one can achieve by using the power of a community.

THE DIFFERENT MILE

Last Sunday, I run 20 miles for joy, whilst they trekked thousands of miles for survival. After I finished my run, I returned home. On the other hand, they never will, as they have lost their homes. With "they", I mean millions of people that have left their country and made their way to seek saver surroundings to live in with their families.
