In the press

In Belarus I worked with a film crew from Welcome to Belarus. They made an episode about my journey. Recently I showed this to friends, colleagues, and fellow runners at the Circus Hostel. Afterwards my friend Paul Scraton hosted a Q and A. 


 Thanks to HOKA ONE ONE their shoes fueled over 1,000 kms in training and even more on the adventure. I was featured on their #humansofHOKA both before and after my adventure. 

Before I left on my adventure I met up with the Ausdauer Coaches to talk about my trip. In this podcast we talk about life after reaching my goal. 

It is in English! 

If you missed the first podcast just scroll down. 

 Anton from Radio Free Europe wrote the first article about my adventure. So I was very happy to sit down with him in Minsk to talk a little bit about my trip.
