In our 10th episode, we chat with Toronto’s running ambassador, Chris DeKoning about skateboarding, cats, and the hilarious (we think so!) story behind the nickname, “Hawaii.”
We were joking that year, we were like, why don’t we do the half Sunday and make it 101km. The next year half of us went back to do it, but then in the morning, everyone was like, ‘no, I’m good. I don’t want to do it.Chris “Hawaii” DeKoning
We also discuss Chris’ progression as a runner as well as his experience as the assistant director of the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Broadcast. Chris also shares his thoughts on the Toronto running community, the future of racing, and his experience trying to keep up with kids on a track.
