Activities

Qing Li

In my spare time, I like to run marathons. When I run, I feel very relaxed.
I used to be the instructor of the students’ Marathon Association of Shenzhen International graduate school, Tsinghua University (MAST). I have helped hundreds of people with zero running experience to train scientifically to run a marathon (42.195 km). By now, I have run dozens of marathons. Currently, my PB for the marathon is 303 (3 hours and 3 minutes). I hope that in 2024, I can successfully break 300 (全马破三) in the marathon.
In addition, I like to travel around and take a leisurely walk, especially small and unique places that always fascinate me.
