Satisfying season opener at Chile Pepper Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas after some rough weeks. The past weeks of training did not quite go as planned: issues with my IT-Band forced me to alter my plans which meant that I missed out on the first race of the season and my training looked quite different as planned. Luckily, we found a way to treat my tendon and since two weeks, my training has been surprisingly good. Following that, we decided to race the first big race of the season. I was...

As part of my season preparation, I tested my shape against strong competition at Ägeriseelauf. After two training weeks in the high altitude of St. Moritz, I traveled to Oberägeri to compete in this 14.1k race around the lake. Right from the first meter, Tadesse Abraham, national record holder in marathon, took the lead irresistible to win the race in course record time. Behind him, a chase group formed with Marcel Berni and Adrian Lehmann, I tried to hang on to this pack because within a...

In Portland, Oregon, I missed my goal in my last 5000m of the season. The waiting game continuous. The race went out unexpected slow. Our pacemaker planned to hit 66 second laps which is way faster than I ever ran. Following that my race plan was it to start conservative in the back of the pack and work my way up. But after the first 200m I found myself in the Top 10 and it seemed like no one want to follow the pacemaker. We ran our first 400m in 69 seconds and it followed quite a big change in...

My first race over 25 laps turned out to be a rough fight which I finished in 9th position. Two days later, I met my minimal goal by finishing 8th in...

At C-USA Indoor Championships in Birmingham, Alabama, I raced over 5000m and 3000m against strong competition. After a short block of training, I competed in the C-USA Indoor Championships. In last few weeks, training went really well, that's why I was really excited to compare myself with other runners. Since this meet was mainly focused on scoring points for the team, my coach put me into the 5000m and 3000m. This is always an interesting challenge, one night is obviously not enough to fully...

At the Texas Tech Classics in Lubbock, TX, I won to my first track meet in the USA. For the first time in this season, I competed over 3000m. As usual, the goal for my race was to run as fast as possible to secure a spot in the first heat of the C-USA Championships. This race was with 19 competitors quite big, but thanks to an aggressive start of my teammate, the group spread out right from the start. Our first Kilometer war on pace (2:49) and I felt really comfortable running it. Then another...
