… and it’s running very fine!
You might have noticed: I have not posted since a long time. But life is still running and so many good things happened in the meantime. So many, that I did not found the time to write about (all) of them! But I will try to give you a short update – before travelling on honeymoon next week! 🙂
And my wife made me a great present to confirm my attendance with „the world’s most beautiful marathon“: TWO OCEANS MARATHON in Kapstadt. But more about that later…
Not only life is running: I am still out for training, running, races, … So I took part in „ECCO Indoor Trail“ here in Dortmund (approx. 5 minutes away from my home – http://www.indoortrail.de/) and had very much fun with the trails, meeting old and new (trailrunning-) friends, …
Beside that I am full active in training/workouts. At the end of the year I changed to a new fitness gym, to „Fitness First“ (http://www.fitnessfirst.de/) and got new inspiration and motivation from new full-body-workouts, new training methods like TRX, first meeting with personal trainer Michael Fieth (http://www.care-fit.de) and from great cycling-hours with Frank.
For running races in first half of 2012 (Two Oceans Marathon, Hermannslauf, …) I am accompanying some guys from our local running club with their long runs.
Movie premiere: „Heaven and hell“
On Saturday evening during ECCO Indoor trail GORE organized the premiere of the movie/documentation „Heaven and hell“ (Miriam, Gerhard and Hans-Peter followed us during TAR and made an incredible 60min-movie about this): http://www.transalpine-run.com/heavenandhell/
Pearl Izumi – testing stuff „autumn/winter 2012“
One important thing I have not posted until now in all the trouble 🙁 is a short review about some stuff from Pearl Izumi „collection autumn/winter 2012“ which they sent me. But I made my first experiences already (and can say, they are VERY GOOD!) – and will send more detailed review and first pictures soon. Hopefully from South-Africa…
Pearl Izumi – „trailrunning face“
These days I received first information about the planned foto shooting from Pearl Izumi for the „trailrunning face of the year“. It may take place in May 2012 – in the area around Chamoix (Mont Blanc). I am very excited about this already and well keep you up to date…

Holidays – I am coming…
Now I am in last preparations for our holidays in South Africa: Relaxing, enjoying nature, maybe some small trailruns in the Drakensberge, the Tsitsikamma National Park, on the Tafelberg – but most important is the recovery and enjoying the journey with my wife. And on last days in South Africa/Kapstadt I will run the „the world’s most beautiful marathon“: the Two Oceans Marathon in Kapstadt (http://www.twooceansmarathon.org.za/events/ultra-marathon).
Looking so forward for the next weeks… 🙂
