The Pittsburgh Marathon
May 8, 2018
Paul grew up very active in soccer. His intro into endurance sports happened after he graduated college and put on excessive weight living a sedentary office life. After a few years, he quit engineering to work in a running store and has been in the running industry ever since. Paul is a Race Director for three trail events in San Diego that he puts on under his business, Off Road Pursuits. He is also currently working for Orange Mud, selling some killer hydration packs!
Paul got started with endurance racing through triathlon, then made the switch to trail and ultra running in 2010. After completing over 20 races from 50K through 100 miles, Paul will be racing his first ever road marathon in May. Paul will be taking on the Pittsburgh Marathon as his first race with the d2e Ambassador Team!
Potomac River Run Marathon
May 6, 2018
I am a proud mother of two and have been serving in the Navy for the past 17 years. I started running in 2006 to quit smoking and continued thru Iraq and after. I came back with some serious PSTD and have been dealing with it since 2008. Every day is a struggle and a fight, but running and working out helps me deal with all the challenges. I have ran close to 100 races and am psyched to enter a new chapter of my life- ultra running. I am super excited to represent D2E because I know first hand what depression can do to people.

Black Hills 50k
June 22, 2018
I grew up in Pennsylvania and started running during high school. I fell in love with it almost instantly but couldn't have imagined just how much it would help me over the years. During my junior year of college, my brother unexpectedly passed away. Running has helped immensely while trying to cope with the loss of him. I recently moved from my home in PA to Salt Lake City to pursue a graduate degree in sports nutrition. Over the past year, I ran my first marathon and then decided to make it a mission to qualify for Boston for my second marathon. In November, I went home to PA to run the Harrisburg marathon where I achieved my BQ of 3:29:14!

The Portsmouth Waterside Coastal Marathon
December, 23, 2018
My name is Louis, Iʼm from the U.K. and I'm 37 years old.
Throughout most of my adult life, I have battled depression and bouts of anxiety, I'm also a recovering alcoholic.
To keep me on a better path from the one I was previously on, I have found physical fitness to be a great way to help me do that. My weapons of choice in the battle are Long Distance Running and Boxing, Iʼm currently training for my first Ultra Marathon, of which I intend to run 5 in 2018 and also the London Marathon.
My hope is people can see where I was and where I am now and use that as inspiration to move forward with their own battles. Eventually, we can together break the stigma surrounding Mental Health.

Big Turtle 50 Miler
April 21, 2018
Been running for only a few years. First ultra was 6 days after my first marathon. Both of which were in fall of 2017. I have a son who is going to be 10 in March and who has autism. I dealt with depression as a teen. I learned to control it through self-talk and changing my mindset.
My fav ultra runner is David Goggins. Former Navy SEAL.
Marathon & Half Marathon Runner
May 27, 2018
I’m a certified personal trainer, massage therapist/craniosacral therapist and run coach. D2E especially hits home from me because I suffer from bipolar disorder and high social anxiety. Running has been literally a life saver for me. Not only for the mental and physical therapy but for my soul. My preferred distance is the marathon and half marathon. Last May was a PR on the Vermont city marathon in Burlington with a 3:13. This May in Buffalo New York will be my next marathon. I’m still cracking sub 3:00 and have goals on cracking 2:30 in the years to come.
United Physical Therapy 49k Ultra
August 19, 2018
Born and raised in Alaska. I come from an Alaska running dynasty but am definitely the black sheep! Every good team needs an even better hype man right!?! I had a wonderful childhood full of love and opportunity. Into my 20’s things just mentally got tough. Started with loosing my grandfather, who was beyond a hero to me. That sadness just compiled with struggles life throws at everyone until 10 years later I was on a path of depression and anxiety that I couldn’t shake. Drank rather heavily and basically treated my body like a trash can. Once my son Jack Danger Foldager was born in May 2017 I just decided it was time to be Dad and I had to do something different. With the help of my amazing Oksana I changed my life around. Went primarily plant based and found the toughest race on earth. Got into the Hurt100 lottery in January 2018 and started running. Along the way I found running opened up my mind and helped me fight my battles head on. For the longest time I felt lost but now, we’ll now I’m running forward! I look forward to every day and can’t wait until I get to climb that next mountain! YAR!!

Der Berlin Mauerweglauf 100 Miles
August 11-12, 2018
Patrik is a Cosmologist that works with IT-security and cloud . A father of three beautiful princesses and live outside Stockholm, Sweden.
I’ve always enjoyed running but started to do it more serious back in 2014 when I signed up for my first Ultra (50k) after that I’ve increased the volume and the distance. 2015, I signed up for 75k, when I finished that one (2nd place) I told my wife to forbid me to sign up for anything longer than that. Two weeks later I signed up for my first 100 Miles… After that I’ve been running 100 milers, 6hrs, 12hrs and 24 hrs..
The top three races that I want to do are: Spartathlon, Bad Water and keys100. I try run every day but work, travel and other appointments prevent me from going out every day which is kind of frustrating. I love getting out for an evening run, to clear my head after a hectic day. It is my way of winding down. To get perspective and new ideas.
I’m also an ambassador for the “Berlin Mauerweglauf” Mauerweglauf translate to “wall road race”, it’s a race that goes where the Berlin wall stood until November 9th, 1989. This race is honoring and remembering everyone that tried to flee from East Berlin and was killed. I think it’s important that we do not forget that there was a time when people weren’t free to move around in Europe. We should always strive to open borders, not close them!
