|Mountain crystal finisher award I received after Swiss Alpine Marathon 1995.|
I spent the summer 1995 in Switzerland training around Walensee, Melchsee, Davos, Saint Moritz and several other fantastic locations.
I also finished four tough and steep races that summer:
- Vilan Berglauf 13.5km +1,840m
- Frutigen-Adelboden Berglauf 19.5km +950m
- Gotschna Berglauf (Klosters) 11.5km +1,080m
- Swiss Alpine Marathon (Davos) 67km +2,700m
Those were very good times. In fact whenever you are running in the mountains, it's always a great pleasure.
But what matters is the next 20 years. There are still so many awesome races I want to finish. Starting from Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc 168km (104 miles) next weekend, my longest ultra so far.
