Quickie

Yesterday I ate a ton of pizza at Conan’s with my friend Scott so I was looking forward to a long evening run in the neighborhood. But when I went out, it was too cold! It was about 50ºF and windy.

I told myself that I should at least run the first leg of my normal route and see if I warm up. I ran a couple of miles, but my face was so cold I decided to cut the run short and try again during the day. (Maybe I need some winter running gear?)

Looks like it will be lovely weather for a lunch run today!

Life Scene: Shinkansen to Osaka

November 1996, Tokyo → Osaka Excited to see my girlfriend! “When can I leave for the weekend?” I work in Kanda. One stop on the Yamanote-line away from Tokyo Station. That’s where the Shinkansen departs from. Earlier in the day on my lunch break, I buy a Shinkansen ticket at the discount shop. It’s easy enough even for a foreigner. #485761069 /…

Quickie

Today I ran my normal route, which is about 5 miles. Although my knee is still sore, it feels good to be back to a regular routine. I think if I am careful to not twist my knee (in other words, just run straight) then I won’t re-injure myself. Now that I am putting on miles again, my appetite has grown again.

Which is a good thing.

Now I can eat and drink without fear!
