Krachttraining 2 van deze week voltooid ✅ Tot nu toe gaat mijn semi goede voornemen (hoewel ik niet aan goede voornemens doe) helemaal volgens plan 👅 Hoe staat het met de jouwe? Ook nog volgens plan? #postworkout
parkrun is a great place for solitary runners like myself, to feel the comfort of running with friends.
(Besides the #furbuddies)

I’m Korean and Scandinavian. My dad (Scandinavian) was in the army and stationed in Korea, where he met my mother. I was born and raised in Minnesota in the 80’s, and there was ZERO diversity. My sister and myself — we were the “diversity,” and everyone else was White. I got the full treatment of kids making the cliche Asian jokes, from pulling and slanting their eyes at me to various racial slurs. I don’t believe it was in hate, but, rather, kids being uneducated about differences in humanity and the inappropriateness of their words and actions.
I started weightlifting in high school and actually got quite large (I was 6’2” and 235 lbs)! But then I herniated a disc in my back, which seemed tragic at the time, but that’s what got me into running and cycling.
Now, I love participating in road races, dualthlons, tri’s, you name it! Last year, I won 3 Duathlons, placed 6th at Tour de Big Bear, and 15th at the Mammoth Gran Fondo!
My current goal is to run as many consecutive Boston marathons as I can and eventually tackle the world majors. Both Boston and Chicago are in the lineup this year. I’m proudest of my effort at Boston ’18, given the conditions — I finished in 2:56:32! So many ppl didn’t finish, show up, or withdrew, even pros. I felt pretty elite after that!
Running has shaped my mental toughness. Don’t quit! Ever. It feels way worse to give up than whatever pain is happening right now. My son is only 14 months, and I want to teach and show him to never give up and to always stay determined. Stay committed to your goals.
The Asian community may not be gifted with physical traits that benefit them in sports (such as height or size), but we have an incredibly high-level of drive and determination, which, in the running world, counts for so much more (IMHO)!
Achievements are not universal. Not everyone can achieve a gold medal or podium, BUT EVERYONE CAN achieve their *own* goals and personal bests, regardless of nationality or race.
#REDJanuary : Day 16 - Evening Run 🏃🏻♂️ ♥️ I finished today strong with a fairly easy-going run. With going back to work recently I had taken today off to allow myself and my body to recover so have not done a huge amount by my high standards. It’s important to rest when you need to, but I also know what is good for my mind... and what is good for my mind is to finish the day with a short run. I prefer to run either early in the morning or later in the evening because these are the times of day when I struggle the most mentally. Running is a form of therapy for me.. it allows me to unwind, let go, and burn off any negative energy. I always feel so much better after a run - even the shorter ones.
Today my mind completely drifted off and has inspired me to write something this evening. It’s amazing how your mind can drift off in to the strangest places. Running/Exercise can do that - it can inspire creativity and deeper thinking as well as being a good distraction from the stresses of day-to-day life! I am now going to start work on writing.. I have to be honest I’m a little bit apprehensive about this one but I’m going to do it anyway! 📝
