BY GUEORGUI TCHEREDNITCHENKO
@ VOL 105
ON JUL 31, 2013
An Ironman triathlon is one of the hardest endurance races in the world; a 3.8km swim followed by a 180km bike ride and a 42.2km marathon to finish. Surely, only a super-human athletes with elite endurance could possibly hope to participate in such an event? Wrong; in this presentation, Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko presents the story of a perfectly average guy's adventures in Ironman training, and lessons that he learned from it along the way.

Qu’est ce qui influence votre santé ? - What influences your health ?
BY FRANÇOIS VAN LISHOUT
@ VOL 1
ON NOV 20, 2014
Dans cette vidéo, je parlerai tout d’abord de mes recherches sur les facteurs génétiques jouant un rôle dans des maladies complexes telles que le cancer, l’asthme, le diabète et la maladie d’Alzheimer. On peut espérer que d’ici une dizaine d’années, le médecin pourra prédire sur base de vos gènes, quel traitement est le plus adapté dans votre cas. En attendant d’en arriver là, vous pouvez dès aujourd’hui faire quelque chose pour votre santé, notamment en faisant du sport régulièrement. Je montrerai comment la course à pied a changée ma vie et donnerai des conseils pour pratiquer ce sport correctement. En effet, beaucoup de gens abandonnent cette activité à cause de problèmes de genoux. Ceux-ci peuvent pourtant être évité en faisant principalement attention à trois choses : sa technique de course, porter des chaussures adaptées et écouter son corps (notamment, ne pas vouloir en faire trop du jour au lendemain).
In this video, I will first talk about my research activities, which focuses on genetic factors influencing complex diseases like cancer, asthma, diabetes and Alzheimer disease. We can expect that in about ten years, doctors will be able to predict, based on your genes, which treatment is best indicated in your case. Before we get there, you can already start today doing something for your health, for instance by doing sports regularly. I will show how running changed my life and give some advices on how to do it right. Indeed, many people give up this activity because of knee problems. However, these can be avoided, mainly by paying attention to three things: the running technique, wearing appropriate shoes and listening to your body (in particular, avoiding doing too much from one day to the other).
Tin's Running Story
"People sometimes sneer at those who run every day, claiming they'll go to any length to live longer. But don't think that's the reason most people run. Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but BECAUSE............" - Murakami - What I Talk About When I Talk About Running.
Tin ran 70km in Sapa in Vietnam Moutain Marathon 2015. There were 156 runners (including 21 Vietnamese) participating in this 70km run. Tin was one of the only 8 Vietnamese who could complete the route. And, last month he accomplished a new record of running 100km around HCMC!
If you are curious how this slim and quiet man could do it, let’s listen to his unbelievable story.
The World Marathon Majors
BY STEPHEN FERGUSON
@ VOL 12
ON APR 25, 2019
"My running career started in 2011 when I accidentally caught diabetes and so my first job was to buy a pair of running shoes and sign-up for a couch to 5k."
Stephen Ferguson talks to us about the challenge of running his first marathon and that this inspired him to continue running and be awarded the World Marathon Majors, a medal won by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest.

Joseph Tame Runs the 20x20
Last night's PKN Tokyo Vol. 100 was a night to remember, and not only were we so happy to have Joseph Tame take to the stage for a second time (watch his first presentation here) to update us on his latest projects, he shared with everyone a special run he had done just for our anniversary, in the shape of our dear "20x20" format! Don't believe it's real? Here's the actual run as recored by RunKeeper. And we'll soon have Joseph's presentation on the site for everyone to watch.
The Art of Running
Most runners are powered by performance drinks and nutritional energy bars, but Joseph Tame is powered by laughter, smiles, and a smidgen of confusion. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from our very special PKN Tokyo Vol. 100), Joseph shows us the art he has created through running. Using Nike's GPS run-tracking technology he runs routes on the map shaped like animals, shoes (as a promotion for Nike) and most recently spelled out "20x20" as a 10-year birthday gift to PechaKucha -- what a unique and wonderful surprise it was! It all started about 5 years ago when Joseph was accepted to run in the Tokyo Marathon (due to high demand about 1 in 8 applicants are selected) and, due to his fascination with technology, decided to live-stream his experience so that he may share it with those who couldn't participate. Later, with Japan's public television network NHK, Joseph ran the words "Ishinomaki (石巻)" in the city most seriously affected by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. He spoke to people living there, brought some smiles to their faces, and promoted awareness for the still-troubled region. After several additions to his outfit, a PKN Tokyo Vol. 72 presentation, thousands of kilometers, a multitude of smiles, and many drawings later he has become a sort of ambassador at the crossroads of running and tech. This Sunday the 24th at 8:30am JST, he'll be streaming his run through the Tokyo Marathon once again; you can show your support and check out more of his running-art on his website.
