I have many diverse interests and pursuits, probably too many. However, my true passion is trail running.

My way to trail running
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 an ultra trail race. I ran my first 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 running, and I have never looked back.
