ESPOO, Finland – We recently wrote a series of posts on the Nokia N79 Active, a bundle coming with a Nokia N79, Nokia Sportstracker, a Polar Bluetooth heart rate monitor, an arm band, and a nice headset. As you might have noticed, our photographs and one of our videos had someone we didn’t properly introduce, Mikko Rieger. Mikko was involved in the testing of the N79 Active bundle. He’s a competitive runner (well, returning to competitive running), and we thought he was interesting enough to profile in an interview.*

So, without further ado, we’d like to share with you a video interview we made of Mikko, where we ask him about his running career, his project to get back to his personal best, and how he uses tech to help him train.

*Coincidentally, we interviewed another marathoner, Juha Kemilainen, back in the summer. What’s with these Nokia types who are hooked on running?
