Someone once asked, why Ivan Teh - RunningMan?

Because I like Running... (Though I don't run that often now...)

Because I like Speed... Doing things fast and efficiently, yet still effectively...

Because it reminds me of a cheesy 80s movie...

Because it implies action...

It's been my chosen nickname since 2003.

That's why.
