Born and raised in Canada.
Taught in Japan for 10 yrs.
Married a girl from Tochigi-ken. Visit there every summer.
I teach elementary school gym and science in Canada.
I started running seriously in 1997.( Once hated it because my soccer coach in university killed us on daily 10 and 12k runs.) Love to run all distances but main goal is to stay injury-free (especially from plantar fasciitis) in 2011 .
Please introduce us to the race in NIkko! Thank you for joining this website, and I hope to see you at a training-run or a race soon. We try our best to assist foreign runners to navigate to difficulties of the Japanese running bureaucracy, and fortunately, have a lot of Japanese members who can help with that. I'm looking forward to seeing your blog-posts and other running-related content on this website! Cheers, Juergen (website-creator)
