Steffi was born and raised in Germany and since 1996 has been living in the USA, in the Evergreen State of Washington. She is working as a Food Service Provider at her local school district. She loves spending time with the kids and watch them grow up. She ran her first 5K eight years ago and fell in love with running and races. In 2016 , she finished her first Half Marathon and her first Sprint Triathlon.
Steffi enjoys the outdoors, running, hiking, bike riding, swimming and walks with her dog Oliver. She loves running races, everything from a 5K to a Half Marathon – she enjoys them all. In the summer, she gears more toward swimming in the lake and paddle boarding too. She is doing a lot of cardio weight lifting, because it is beneficial for running.
Her biggest goal is to run a Full Marathon on a race! The Chicago Marathon this year is her biggest goal she has ever reached for. There will be a lot of hard work, sweat and tears to get there. Her other goal would be to finish a Half Marathon in less than two hours (she got so close at her last race – finished with the time of 2.00.32)! She wants to run as many races as possible this year, to make up for all ones missed last year!
