I've been a passionate long distance runner for about 10 years now. I've attended multiple marathons and half marathons. Running has grown to something more than a passion of mine - it has become part of my life. On this site I want to introduce you to my training plan (how much and how far I run, intensity etc.), diet & nutrition as well as training gear such as running shoes. As I've recently suffered from plantar fasciitis, that's also a topic I'm going to cover.

I'm still looking for a new pair of running shoes and have found this guide helpful: Best Running Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis (2014).

  • I discovered vegan protein powder for myself (article coming soon!).
