Ultra Running: A Love | Hate Affair
BY JONATHAN SOON
@ VOL 3
ON JUL 01, 2016
An ultramarathon is a race that goes beyond the 42km distance. Jonathan Soon says he foolishly signed up and completed his first 100km race in October 2014. His presentation focuses on the human side (i.e emotional) of the ultramarathon journey. He shares on the toughness and the intensity of preparing and running for one, and most importantly, the values and rewards beyond Personal Bests (PBs) or the distance he has run. These lessons are not restricted in the realms of ultra-running. The things he has learned have assisted his growth in his other passions as well.

The pleasures of road running in Pyongyang
BY VERA SCHOLZ
@ VOL 7
ON SEP 14, 2017
Vera Scholz’s evocation of the 'pleasures’ associated with running in North Korea don’t exactly fit the stereotypical lens through which we are encouraged to view this somewhat secretive country. As this story unravels we learn the running event is secondary to Vera’s “self-delusional quest to look behind the scenes”, as she so succinctly expresses it. This captivating narrative is embedded in every image.

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.

Running the Tokyo Marathon for Home for All
PechaKucha and Klein Dytham architecture co-founder Mark Dytham is a man on a mission. He's been training for months to run in the 2014 Tokyo Marathon, and this Sunday he'll do just that, but he's also running for a cause: Home for All. Home for All is a growing project developed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Toyo Ito to build community centres in the areas most greatly affected by the disasters of March 2011. Your contributions will go toward the creation of a future community space in Tohoku and will assist in the maintenance of this vital organization -- support Mark and Home for All by checking out his Indiegogo campaign page!
Running the Tokyo Marathon for Home for All
PechaKucha and Klein Dytham architecture co-founder Mark Dythamhas been training for over 8 months to run the 2014 Tokyo Marathon, but he's not running it just for his health.

All proceeds will go to the creation of a new community center, and the upkeep of the Home for All organization.
