For many years I have been training Stephanie, who suffers from a very rare autoimmune disease. For many, she is a motivating role model and so full of joie de vivre, because what hardly anyone knows is that we regularly have to briefly interrupt training. Steffi regularly receives chemotherapy and other therapies that would normally blow you away, but not Steffi. She gets up every time and is more enthusiastic than before. In the meantime we have increased from the sprint distance to the middle distance and next year she will start at the Challenge Roth on the Ironman distance. You can read a wonderful interview from Steffi here - link to the article
we keep fighting and I'm already looking forward to celebrating next July with Steffi on the Challenge finish line!
