I love this video by Andy Ellis. Of course paired with Sakamoto Ryuichi’s music makes it even more wonderful.
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!
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 /…
How about a “Music Monday” post? Here’s one of my favorite Beatles songs “I’m Happy Just to Dance With You”. I love this song because George is on vocals while John and Paul sing backing. I really like the rhythm guitar too. This particular version (the music part) is a rare live recording.
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!
