About me:

I was born in 1980 in Kassel, I live in the small village of Kehrenbach near Melsungen, where I was elected chief administrator of the village in October 2019. I started running in January 2016. After I had suffered from severe overweight and was ill, I knew that I had to change something in my life. Since then, 60kg have fallen by the wayside, which gave me a whole new attitude to life. From couch potato to half marathon runner, that describes it quite well.


My biggest highlight was the start at my very first half marathon in 2017 in Kassel. In the past I wouldn’t have dared this, the better I felt when crossing the finish line.

Why I am a 7CRun-Ambassador: 

There is a great idea behind 7CRun, it’s a great project with great goals for a good cause. You can help other people all over the world with your hobby and passion. According to the motto #running connects, I want to do my part and support the whole thing.
