Maja Tesch competes in the ÖTILLÖ SwimRun series, which she won after transforming from “the girl who did a little bit of running”. Maja also talks about Vivo-Barefoot shoes, which Peter and Molly also love, and the concept of “plogging” (picking up trash while running). Work:Training:Life Balance is also discussed as Maja balances being a nurse and a high-performance athlete.

Maja Tesch won the ÖTILLÖ SwimRun World Championships in 2015, and although going well faster in 2016 she placed 3rd with new partner Bibben Nordblom. But it is not just about the result alone for Maja Tesch, it is about the journey and the adventure.
