"I started running in December 2015. I completed my first 1/2 marathon in honor of a friend I lost of cancer. After, I heard about ultra running... I decided to run a charity ultra in honor of my dad and my friend who I both lost of cancer. So in November 2016, just 10 month after starting to run, I ran a 100 Mile race and raised 13K for a local cancer patient.
During 2018 I developed hip issues while training for the Yeti 100... I had to cancel the race and finally see a doctor... I was told that my running ultras would be over. I was devastated, but shortly after... I found Dr. Gross. I will never forget the phone call at 9PM one night from a person answering in my native tongue (German) "hallo wie gehts". I was hit of guard and than he said "Dr. Gross here, you are a perfect candidate for BHR, you got any questions for me?" At my 1 year follow up with Lee, I was afraid to tell her first how much I already did (4000 Miles on the bike since 2nd surgery) it was only after she told me everything looked great that... I told her all the rides I did, After..., I started training for my first spring triathlon. I did 2 sprints and then signed up for Daytona. Meanwhile I'm signed up for Ironman Florida next year and on the waitlist for Texas and Chattanooga.
I’m extremely happy and thankful... Without you guys it would not have been possible and I want to share this as it’s also a great accomplishment for Dr. Gross and his teams great work."
