About leaving the safety of a good job as a pharmaceutical engineer in order to follow his heart, about mixing different styles of running, the joy of Obstacle Races and the joy of running fast. About the relation to his own body, about crashing hard in an Ultra, his nostalgia when it comes to running and about being a new member of the Salomon Running team since January 2015.
