Moinsen, everyone! 👋

I’m Tim Teege a.k.a. Teesche and I write and podcast about long-distance running and books.

My current projects include a 880 day running streak, 20 marathons and 20 books in 2024, as well as trying to break 3:00 hours in a marathon (recently achieved!) and qualifying for the Western States 100.

  • Great article! I've read so many long blogs only to get bored in the middle as I suffer terribly from ADD and move on to other things. Yours has been one of few that held my attention all the way to the end.
