  1. Did you actually fly to other countries from your home town for the sake of running? 🙂

    • Yeah, I’ve been try to run one or two destination marathons a year, great opportunity to get out and explore someplace new. The only downside is dealing with the jet lag. Right now I have a very old dog that keeps me from traveling, so will probably do most of my marathons in the Southern California area for the time being.

    Why did you take 9 years off– did you lose motivation or get injured?

    • Hi Pat,

      Although I didn’t run any marathons during that time, I continued to run during those lost years – although there was a two year period where my running was sporadic. I was living in Japan at the time and the running boom there didn’t take off until maybe the mid to late 2000s, so I kind of just lost interest in marathons or racing because there seemed to be a lack of local races where foreigners could participate. It wasn’t until I read the book “Born to Run” in 2009 as well as seeing the success of the Tokyo Marathon that piqued my interest in running marathons again. I did have more injuries during my early years of running because I was a heal striker, but all those injuries went away when I learned to land on my mid foot. I must admit, I have lost motivation from time-to-time to continue running, but it normally doesn’t last very long, I eventually begin missing that endorphin high you get after finishing a run.

      Thanks for the question!
