Triathletes in the interview: maren schink
For many, triathlon a men’s sport. the participants are considered to be hard-boiled, finally, they go three sports disciplines. however, in recent years, the three-way fight is always more to anyone’s sport. there are good reasons and it is no wonder that more and more women in the waves, then the wheel and finally in the running shoes throw. that you do not need to be always the same top athlete, i would like to you with my new post series. “triathletes in the interview” show.
Start today maren schink, whose magical smile excited me for a long time on instagram. last year i was able to meet you at the itu hamburg triathlon personally and was totally impressed with your run history and how you came to triathlon. just because she is not the typical athletes cliché, i was struck by your passion and your wonderful pragmatism, all the more! “the main thing is i have fun!”
This fun is that you will find your blog ichhasselaufen.de, on you for your run-of-entry accompanied can. in the meantime, she has made it to the finish line of the half marathon, and a triathlon, managed and motivated the reader to be active. she also shares her ruthless, not always positive, but most of the time entertaining thoughts in training and before competitions, which can probably relate to everyone somehow.
But the lady from duesseldorf to get to know yourself!

In the test: with the urban sports club for the first time to climb
You have chosen! last week, i asked both here on on my facebook page, which sports should i test this week with the the urban sports club . the zumba or rock climbing? the decision fell on rock climbing, and with wrapped up i have of;my girlfriend franzi.
Climbing in berlin-neukölln
Location: t-hall in neukölln
Saturday morning we went to the t-hall to berlin-neukölln. felt somewhere in the middle of nowhere, the hall is located in the industrial area. but you go around the corner in the lively treptower straße. to achieve so, but super. as i climb itself never, or in a climbing center was, i was quite amazed about the size and the diversity of the walls. on 1800 square feet several rocks extend similar structure, climbing walls and traditional climbing the walls, the beginner to advanced to climb up the invite. also to the kids is designed with a small area (super great with handles in dinoform).
Introductory climb for novice
Both franzis are also my previous climbing experience is very pronounced, so we visited climb the trial. the held every saturday between 11 and 12 o’clock, without registrations. you get his belt, four tokens, and the fun can begin! at first we thought: okay, with four brands, we are but fix. on several walls with different difficulty levels the trainer willing to explain and back up the rope. say the four brands should be sufficient for four climbing walls .
Well, we jumped on the wall! first franzi, the erklimmte fast as a squirrel and with no significant problems, the first two walls. then i came in. “um, yes, hello, you’re climbing the wall!”. “don’t think, just high,” said the coach, who was now behind me on the rope. okay. and i climb high, had to press my body against the rock to pay attention and not get lost. “legs by stretching!” also the i got. but in the middle of the view down, and the queasy feeling in my stomach: “oh, god, oh, god!” i climb up here just a seven-meter-high wall! thoughts and gut feeling, displace! continue to climb. three handles and i was done. yay! the coolest thing was abseiling. what jump feel the wall down!
Also, the second wall climbed halfway easily. however, the level of difficulty increased and the wall numero three was 12 meters high. a button, which sets off the alarm light on the ceiling waited at the top. motivation to eat. head out and go! the first half worked really well. but from then on, the spacing between the handles were bigger and i realize how high i actually was above the ground. argh! hold on! the next grip to catch a glimpse of. then i had no more strength in the arms and let go. like a sip of water, i hung in tens of meters in height. but coach marcus didn’t care: “try again!” mhm? well. i back to the wall back and with the last bit of strength, i was able to mobilize, i reached the target and hit the button. again it went down. only this time, it became clear to me what she meant when she spoke of her, the blood in the forearms pulsed. age butterfly! when used to please his forearms? coming when climbing really flowing.
A glance at the clock revealed that it was already 20 before 12. so much to: with four brands, we are determined to fix. you do not climb the four-walls of time only so, but also needs his break. especially so that the arms come clear again. while i made it so on a mat cozy, was looking for franzi with the last wall is the ultimate challenge and defeated them! to me, the wall was tricky, and i opted again for the first. and that was really a great idea. without any problems i arrived in zero comma-nothing at the top and super happy that it worked out so well.
Very pleasant, too, that it was full. next to us, got it, another male duo is made of and a lot of children who took the introductory rock climbing true. over and over i had to find amazed how easy it is the small fell, the walls zukraxeln. while we’re busy there’s always time with the anxiety, or brooding over the next grip were, did not have this thought for you at all. since you came off, but it was with a lightness of touch very quickly above. amazing!
Bottom line: great introductory climb for the sympathetic team
Anyone who has desire to have desire or time to the climb wanted to try, i can recommend the t-hall in berlin neukölln, really. super nice staff and coaches, the answer one of all (so strange) questions. in addition to the walls there is also a gym, a sauna, and a very welcoming bistro. very nice atmosphere and impressive hall. as a member of the the urban sports club is you do not have to climb the only the trial, but also to use other courses for beginners and advanced. just have a look. while i am looking forward to the muscle soreness.
Finally, a mega thanks to franzi for the assistance!
In collaboration with the urban sports club.

Get ready to run online!
A year ago today, the first day and i was unemployed! listened for the first time not so great, but to be honest: i was super happy! after two years of advertising agency i had left the life as an art director (a designation with the outside of the branches, no one to do something) behind me. where i wanted to go, was still a little wabbernd. it was clear, for the first time a mini-sabbatical in asia and go girl! run! continue to expand.
Today, a year later, i publish my first e-book. together with a woman, i can not choose would have been better to me: carina of travel run play, self-run, and travel enthusiastic, and i met last year in october for the first time. we knew each other already through our blogs, but live and in color, it was yet again a completely different number. a grandiose! shortly afterwards the group broke up for their big adventure to south america. since then, she tours with friend and van, the panamericana high, and we communicated exclusively over the internet.
Independently of each other, the idea of e-books was to run the initial a long time in both of our heads. mutual sympathy, and, above all, respect and admiration for the work of others, led to the fact that we were together and since april the script is the get-ready-to-run worked. countless e-mails, design ideas, manuscripts, photos, flying between south america and europe scraps and funny back and forth. and at the end of the idea but more than just “another run-of-was book”.
We wanted to get ready to run will be different than all the run books that you can buy. it should be like us: not well-toned gym rats, but two girls who have discovered running and full of passion and power are in! it should listen to us, to us and we want you to feel what we feel: the pure enthusiasm for running!

(the complete list you’ll find, of course, get ready to run). to do this, the running stories of our blog reader, have you sent so many and introduced. alone, the response when we announced that we are bringing an e-book out of it, hammer!
Add to this the wonderful support from our friends, who acted as photographer behind the camera, last minute correction came to read, or in between one or the other aches and pains listen to and always with great tips around the corner came. a thousand thanks to you, and you, as my reader or my reader! without all the support from you and the fact that you look here regularly were it not for the book at all.
