Spending my youth doing track & field in Finland gave me some very good work ethic, and an early love for training. It has stayed with me until this day.
Going to the sports university in Finland, put even more fire into my passion for sports, and with a M.D in my hand, I started as a teacher of physical education.
Later the passion for endurance sports grew, and marathons, mountaineering and long days on MTB, became the foundation for 2 things.
My start in triathlon and my passion for food as a support for the training and racing in endurance sports. 15 years later, I still love the sport, and with further education in sports nutrition, I spend my time, helping athletes from beginner to the very high elite, to let food be a positive part, of their life and performance.
And I am still racing…….because I still love to train and test myself.
“See you out there!”
