Personal

Life is not only about work…

I have a lot of interests and hobbies, but my true passion is Trail & Ultra Running.

Self-Made Ultra-Trail Runner

Runners are made, not born

When I turned 36, I began running. At that time, after years of being a “couch potato”, I was not able to run even a mile. I worked hard; and after 5 years, I finished my first marathon. It was tough and took more than 5 hours. Despite my unimpressive finish time, I hadn’t given up. I continued to train further and developed myself to a real runner.

In the following years, I have run several marathon races, and I felt ready to try ultra-trail running. I ran my first ultra-trail race (86.3km / 3650m+) at the age of 45. No matter what the finish time was, it was my personal success story. This race changed me as a runner and as a person. I have thrown myself fully into trail and ultra running, and I have never looked back.
