One of my first assignments for Runner’s World was to cover Marathon des Sables in 1999 – as a reporter, not as a participant. Just a few months earlier I had taken up running. Standing there seeing 65-year old women and men finishing the race made a strong impression. Coming back 2009 it was a good feeling returning as a participant this time.

During the past 11 years of trail running & racing I have acquired some experience but I feel there are still many things to be learned. One of my first trail races was the 2-day mountain marathon FEM, then a hugely polular event. Here is a list of some trail & mountain marathon races I have run in the past.
