Tomorrow, Mariko is flying up to Indianapolis to watch Koa’s marching band perform in the Bands of America Grand Nationals. Since I’ll be home alone for a couple of nights, she made a big pot of beef curry so that I don’t starve. 😀

It’s so delicious! ❤🍛

Today happens to be my birthday, and to celebrate, I took the day off from work. 😄 So with time on my hands, I was wondering what to do… maybe go for a ride on my motorcycle? Maybe go for a long bicycle ride? But after all, I decided to go running. I’ve discovered that I really love it!

I ended up running on Brushy Creek Regional Trail and I felt so good that I completed my half-marathon challenge on Strava. It’s a really good feeling to know that at 53, I can still increase my distances and get stronger. I hope I can stay healthy for a good long time!

I admit that part of my motivation for running so far today was because I knew that I was going to feast on pork katsu curry for dinner. Normally I request oyakodon for my birthday dinner but I’ve been craving curry for a while now!

“CoCo Take-Out” Torrance, 2021

I made it to my parents’ house, where I will stay a week. I’m not technically on vacation since I will be working, but I’m so happy to be here! My parents and I are fully vaccinated so it’s pretty safe to visit according the the CDC guidelines.

After arriving in Torrance and having a beer, we ordered take-out from CoCo Ichibanya and feasted! I had my level-10 curry of course. It was very spicy, but not as spicy as previous visits. Still, very, very good. I’m satisfied. 😊🍛❤
