Switch to Japanese （日本語）
My main activity (besides work) has been bicycling, especially mountain biking, enough so that I purchased the web name for a type of bike for my web site. I have been riding seriously for over ten years and racing for four or five of those years. When I was racing, I would ride over 5,000 miles per year. I had also been active in trying to keep the trails open for cyclists. I have mellowed out a little bit on the biking in the past few years, but still ride quite a bit.
In general, I love the outdoors and nature. Hiking, cross country skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing, trail running, boating, camping, beachcombing, SCUBA diving, sea kayaking, etc. - if it involves nature, I'd much rather be doing that than being in the office working. I also try to stay fit, and have taken up yoga and completed my first (and last) marathon.
From mid-2000 to mid-2001, I cut back a lot on many of my activities in favor of extensive international travel. In particular, I spent a year living in Seoul, Korea for work, and spent time exploring different parts of Asia. Did get to do some riding (and it turns out that Seoul does have some good trails), and lots of hiking in, plus was able to fit the odd snow boarding and SCUBA trips in. I have travelled more since then, especially to Japan (where I spend almost 6 months studying Japanese). Check out my journals/Blogs for stories of my experiences.
