We hitting #outernational streets tonight for our #MCM 


On who you are… 

My name is Jeremy Tobing, u can call me Jeremy. Im from Jakarta, Indonesia. Im turning 24 this year on 12 July. i study Graphic Design and now I work as a Visual Designer and Visual Merchandiser that usually got to be on desk from 9 to 6. And everyday i partly managing my running crew's (@rushrunners) social media on instagram & facebook fanpage.

On running…


I started to run in 2013 when I stopped my hobby as a capoeirista (people that do capoeira) and I don't have time to go to the gym cos in Jakarta the traffic is really really heavy when it comes to after office hour. So i was looking for a new sports that i can do anytime, anywhere. Thats when i lace up my running shoes. 

On Street culture...


From elementary school i really like to customize my shoes, bags and tees with permanent markers, paint and any kind of coloring and drawing tools and sells them to all my friends. Right now the culture changing for me,as a designer i really love to make everything that i hadled can impress everybody and make everybody happy. So thats why i handling all about design, tees, jackets, stickers,etc of my running crew (RUSH RUNNERS) im trying to blend the street culture with running.

On Running culture...


I'm the captain of Rush Runners, Jakarta based running crew. Starting with just a junior runners and love to ask anything to my senior runners just so i can share all about running to my friends. Wanna make running as a lifestyle and make friends from running. im interested in speed rather than distance, but over time im trying and training for better me and about to taste Full Marathon (really wanna do it on Shanghai Marathon).

Besides, i really enjoy this lifestyle and yeah, im the type that will focus only on one sports (im a capoeirista before) so i hope i can do running to the fullest. This culture really brings amazing things to me. Im amazed that i can meet lots of amazing people, inspiring people that shares the same passion. these people tells me to be a better me, to be more active, and live my life to the fullest.

On gadgets...


Really loves all about tech right now. And yes im using the sport watch, social media and running apps to spread the virus of running and healthy lifestyle. And im trying to using all of it to the maximum so people can be motivated by that. talking about using gadget for a good purpose.

On injury...


i confess that i don't wanna shows my injury cos i know it will affect the crew. Cos untill now, i never skip our weekly run. Event that day my ankle was sprained i still come to the session and bring the crews hydration. I dont wanna be a burden and i want to show my running families that im okay, yeah don't worry about me just focus on your runs. 

To get into that state, everyday i always had little training for my body. For example everytime i go to the toilet, i do 3 minutes wallsit. The next i go there, i do 12x4 lunges. before and after sleeping i always do 5 minutes plank. Yep little training like that will makes my body fit so that i can run together with my crews, hopefully minimizing the chance of injuries.

On achievements...


achievement on running in my opinion is about you and yourself. so i must say that my achievements is that i can run faster when im running with my dude Febri. We got

best 5k : 20minutes 30seconds
best 21k (and my first half) : 1 hour 52 minutes
and on mid 2014 i was selected to be the part of Nike Just Do It campaign : Run Java Island. I think that's the best achievement and best running experience in my life.

Top of that, i think my achievement is that i can show the joy of running to all junior runners, so all generation can run.

On future goals...


On your social media...

instagram: jeremytobing << the more active one

i really love to share my journey not only about running, but also about the gear, the love that u got from running, the love from people that runs with you, anything. Everytime i post something on instagram, im trying to inform others in Jakarta that "active and healthy" lifestyle are exist. Not only drinker & smoker that run this city. 

On Pink...

i do running cos it's clears my minds, open up my way of thinking and helps me to reflect all the problems that got in my head. just put your earplug, lace up your shoes and go for a run while enjoying my moody playlist. 

On Pain...

My crew is my family, when im in worst condition i can just come to our weekly session. Jog with all the crews and have a dinner & cup of tea after that. This big family will give me the chill and good advice. When the pain is meaning in sick condition, Instant messenger on my iphone really2 helps me to get connected with my running fams and have a good chat n laughing together.

When I die...

I dont wanna be a burden, so at least i must be healthy so when i die, i die because it's time. Not because of sickness, drugs or any kind of shitty this world gives. Hope the spirit to get healthy will be contagious
