My name is Gottfried Winkler (38) and I am from Stolberg near Aachen. I started running in 2016. Since then I have been able to reduce my weight by almost 30 kilos and was able to finish my first marathon last year. Meanwhile I and my girlfriend run a small running club, with which we also regularly take part in fun runs in the region.
For this year I was able to get a starting place at the Berlin Marathon. Currently I am eagerly waiting for the catch-up date.
Why I am a 7CRun-Ambassador:
I like the idea of doing good while running and also of addressing runners of all levels.
Even with competition in mind, fun and community of people should still be the main focus of running.
