He was inspired to start running when he witnessed his dad, Daniel Toocheck, cross the finish line at the NYC Marathon.
After completing a half marathon Nik noticed how much energy he still had left so he asked his parents if he could try running a full marathon.
Then he had the idea to run a marathon on all seven continents.
After checking with sports medicine doctors and pediatricians Nik’s parents decided to help him pursue his seven continent goal.
In September of 2014 he completed this goal setting a World Record at age 11 and raising over $40,000 for Operation Warm an organization that provides new coats to underprivileged children. Continue Reading →
You might have come here looking for the post “Runner Academy is Plagiarizing Our Content”.
I have decided to take the post down after Matt Johnson removed the plagiarized content from his website and offered the following apology.
I take responsibility for my actions. While I did not steal your content word
for word I did structure it too similar. I modeled too much of what you did
and did add a substantial portion of my own spin to it. I could have done
better. Everyone deserves better. I let myself get too caught up in winning
and competition and I made some poor decisions. . . I thank you for your consideration in removing it and regret the stress you and Angie felt as well. -Matt Johnson
While the evidence does show that Matt copied some of our content word for word, I am willing to accept this apology, and be done with this whole ordeal.
I also told Matt that if he insists on making himself look like a victim I will repost the evidence and set the record straight. My hope is that we never have to deal with this again and we can all get back to helping people reach their running potential.
I appreciate all the support MTA has received over the last two days. You guys are awesome!
Angie and I were recently interviewed on The Running Lifestyle Show which is a wonderful new podcast about balancing running with life.
Kari Gormley, the host and creator, listened to MTA while training for her first marathon. Now things have come full circle and she is helping fellow runners reach their goals.
