Chicago Marathon 2016

Running: mainly for health reasons, continuous motivation and to travel. I have completed 8 marathons on 3 continents (Paris 2015, Berlin 2015, Pyongyang 2016, Chicago 2016, Vienna 2017, Amsterdam 2017, Tokyo 2018, Athens 2018) and 68 half marathons on 4 continents (Europe, Asia, Africa, South America).

Hiking: I have been privileged to summit Aconcagua on 6 Jan 2017, Elbrus on 27 Jul 2014, and Kilimanjaro on 27 May 2012.

Travel: To date (July 2019), I have been to 126 countries on 6 continents. The experiences are countless, so here is simply a list of those 126 countries.
