In case you were wondering, I'm an 18 year old girl from Germany, soon studying in Great Brittain and dreaming of someday running a marathon!
I started running at age 14, 4 years ago, during a particularly boring summer.
At first it was just to make time go by faster and feeling less like the teenage (chubby) mess I thought I was (wasn't really, looking back now...).
But as time went by and I grew up (not really, no), running became a very important part of me.
Up to the point that I started setting a few more ambitious goals for my running. I want to be faster, stronger and someday, when I'm ready and a bit older, a marathoner.
Even though I've been running for a couple of years, I only just ran my first race last April, a 10 K where I finished third in my age group (women under 20).
For the near future, I hope to run a couple more 10K races and a half marathon and I want to take others with me on that journey.
I hope you enjoy the blog and the geeky, sometimes a bit dramatic almost-young-adult that I am!
