About Alex

Wife, runner, German native, beach bum, foodie, and wine lover. If you’re looking for info on how to run your next PR you’ve come to the wrong place. I’m not an expert on running or nutrition, and I won’t tell you what else you should or shouldn’t do. I'm fairly creative but notorious for starting fifty different projects and finishing (n)one. My blog is simply a collection of my personal experience in the crazy world of - running! Along the way I’ll also share what other random projects I’m currently into.
