AGE is but a NUMBER! Our next athlete is a proof of that. Anders Ulrichsen, 50 this year, lives in Grenaa, DK with his wife. He has two daughters and runs his own business as clinical dental technician. Anders is a great guy, calm, self-contained; you just feel very comfortable around him.
He has always been active in sports with football being his favorite, but unfortunately a ruptured ligament put an end to that. After several years with some on/off running and long periods with injuries, he felt it was time to try his hand with triathlon. He was tired of being injured and after the kids moved away from home, he had more time. “I joined the local triathlon club 2015 and went to a meeting for new members, hosted by @philmansfield_msi and there was no doubt in my mind that he was the right person to get me back on track. I began working with Phil June 2016 and I have been injury free ever since. I never imagined myself being in a better shape at 50 than when I was 20, but nevertheless it’s the truth for me. It just proves that with the right programming and knowledge everything is possible. Of course it’s hard work, it takes time, dedication and persistence and consistency, but it’s worth it. I look forward to seeing where this journey takes me.
I’ve played music since childhood Back in 2000 I was a member of an electro/pop band, playing bass and synthesizer. I enjoyed life with the band; composing & producing music, being in the studio, playing concerts at the local venues in Aarhus, Radio Airplay etc. It was a great and memorable period of my life. I haven’t entirely given up music, but today I keep it within our own 4 walls.
Main goal this year is CPH Ironman, but I’ll do some test races before the big day in August.
I look forward to sharing my journey with you guys.
My motto: If I don’t get lost I’ll always make it to the finish line"
