Ninghai Trail – Review (Be your own Hero)

Rheinsteig Ultrarunning – Ligawechsel / League Changes (Bilingual)

So weit die Füße tragen Long-distance run on a different level. Das Thema was ich heute anreiße und was mich die nächsten 365 Tage begleiten wird, werde ich zweisprachig in Deutsch und Englisch schreiben.
