Running partners are good - but only if you this strategy beach test

I admit it: I love the moments of absolute silence in the Morning. If the city still sleeps, the sun is shining, not a man is on the way. Only my running shoes and I. Possibly my two dogs Spagna and Bilbo. A beautiful walking stick, that's all it takes for me. Hardly anything makes me happier. To run alone, it means freedom for me.

I can think what I want, I can feel what I want, you can curse whenever I want, and can run, like I just. I can just be. As I am as I just. And can pay attention on nothing more than my needs. What time is the of the day already? Just! Among other things, that is why I run.

I don't like being alone, but when I Run I enjoy the solitude. Times longer, sometimes shorter. A long time I was very sure that It is not in the realm of possibility that I could miss in my loneliness a little. I must be very naive to have been.

a short biography of Mike Kleiß

Sometimes it takes a bit of "friendly beatings"

There were always situations where I would be without the "running partner in Crime" never really of the body came. Dear Klaas Hamstra, do You remember? Without You I would have done the Mainz half marathon never. At the time, 2012. It was my first Competition ever. And then, equal to 21 km.

I was still much too thick for such a distance, I once had the right Run clothes. In Mainz, I ran into Outdoor stuff. I was sure: Breathable would be enough. Up to Kilometer 15, I was together good. Klaas and I were on the track, funny Videos and sent them to the digital world. At Kilometer 16 of the oven at me was.

And the last five kilometres were to a pure muscle battle. I staggered to the finish. Always motivated by Klaas, is today running coach. No Job suits him better than this. In 2012, he was the one who provided me with valuable tips gave, he ran with me, he beat me with his friendly manner to the target.

It is not enough to run alone

He was the ally of the first hour. And I'm still grateful that it gave him. And the fact of him today for his students. I would still live in Baden-Baden, I would use him more often as a "Partner in Crime". Because in crucial situations, it is not enough just to run alone. Just, if you stand at the beginning, it needs from time to time as an ally. So it continues to run.

In my life, I had the great luck that there were always allies, which contributed to a decisive point, such as a Motor. Sven, for example, who ran with me in a very bad Phase, 15 kilometres through Berlin. Me of Kreuzberg and Neukölln, and the Tempelhof field.

Sven was a great runner, and it still is today. We hardly see each other, unfortunately. But always, when I'm in Berlin, and over, and over I at least in thought with him. Connected you can also be in the spirit. That alone can help.

It creates this special bond

there's Tim. Always when I want to run 16 kilometers, without feeling the distance, then he is the perfect ally. To need the three kilometers to him, I was still the sole Off. The 10 kilometres with him are always characterized by connectedness. There is simply no other 10 kilometres in my life that go by so fast. We have to tell us so much, that we actually need 20 kilometers, or 30, or...! It gushes out from us.

With him I discuss things that I – if at all – only with myself parts. And that is why Tim is so important. Not only that, we walk at a leisurely pace, not only that we have many similar points of view to share, it is always a pleasant and never spoken bond between us. So, now it is out.
