I started unicycling in the autumn of 2007. It was after I saw a great unicycle performance in “Africa, Africa” when I went to a bicycle store with my CTO to by him a bike. Faith or not, but they also sold unicycles. I just couldn’t resist and bought one. It took me a full-time week to master the device. In may 2008 I drove my first marathon in Dusseldorf. But the night before I got caught with the stomach-fluh. I could not eat, could not drink. I gave it a shot but sopped at the half-marathon point. In 2009 I started for the second time. This time I finished, and I must say in a respectable time of 2:32:43.
