I Take BioAstin because…

I first got BioAstin as a prize and started taking it daily. I usually don’t use any sunblock, but even after being under the sun for long hours during marathon races, I found that BioAstin protects my skin from sunburn. Also on voggy days, my asthma symptoms are getting better.

What motivates you

Participating and competing in races. Watching runners of all levels achieve their goals.

What’s your favorite workout

I like early morning runs while it’s still dark and quiet at Fort DeRussy in Waikiki.

Few things you should know about me

I have won the following Marathons so far:
Kauai Marathon
North Shore Marathon
Kona Marathon
Maui Marathon
Maui Oceanfront Marathon
Valley to the Sea Marathon

Anything else

My athletic life started with figure skating and later, sailing. I competed at nationals in Japan for sailing. I first got involved in the Honolulu Marathon as part of my job and ended up becoming a marathon runner myself. When I was younger I hated running but now running is my part of my life.
