We all have busy agendas. Jobs, housework, meeting friends or that hiking trip to the mountains last weekend. Every activity bites a small share of our “energy pie” and in some cases what is left is not enough to serve as a fast muscle recovery. I truly believe that when done right, there is time […]
There are two types of athletes. Those who seem to have figured it out – they put in hard work and get stronger every year. And then there are those who work hard but stay where they are, with no progress. Very often it is the post workout recovery or intensity that is the problem. […]
I can tell from experience that it sucks when hard work doesn’t pay off. It is even more frustrating when you train harder, but seem to get slower. As you might have guessed, training intensity has been too high far too often for me. I felt fast during training, but when races came I was […]
Running in NYC is hardly comparable to anything. In fact, if I would need to explain what New York City is to a teenager, I would say it looks exactly like their messy room. Well, maybe a messy room with an awesome skyline view.

Munich is strategically located in the middle of Europe – a truly awesome starting point for all who want to explore Central Europe. It’s crazy to think about it, but you can reach up to 10 countries within 5 hours and that’s only overland travel – by train, bus or car. You don’t even need […]
When you’re on a tight schedule and would like to squeeze in as much experience as possible, I strongly advise you to travel through Luxembourg City. It doesn’t matter if it’s a flight connection, a train journey or simply involves stopping by this tiny European country when traveling by car. It’s one of the best […]
I am somewhat new to long-distance running. Having professional kayaking as a background I used to have zero time for anything else, really. However, finishing a marathon has long been on my bucket list and, finally, Munich Marathon was my first 42.195km race. I may be slightly biased in my review, but from experience I […]
It was 6:00am on a cold Sunday morning in early October. I was up from bed and very excited about running my first marathon. Legend has it that a Greek messenger ran from the city of Marathon to Athens to announce Persians’ defeat. I remember reading the history of Ancient Greece and thinking how cool it […]
