Birthday I

As the sun sinks slowly into the west, another birthday comes to a close…

…or does it?

No! The fun thing about being in Japan is that your birthday naturally gets extended through multiple time zones. So I will party on, right up to 11:59 PM in Hawaii.

We should all start doing this.

By the way, I think this was my coldest birthday yet! I had to wear a medium weight coat. And it was still cold. Brrrrrr!

Birthday Eve

Good night! A new birthday year starts tomorrow! I can’t wait to see what this year holds. I’m hoping for more races to run and more people to beat chances to improve my personal times.

Yesterday was warm, but today was cooold! I went out this morning to catch my train, and wished for my coat. But it was too late. Tomorrow is summer, though, so I bet it will be nice and warm.

Ha ha ha ha.

Nah, I’m glad I don’t have to deal with 90’s and humidity. OK, I’m really rambling about nothing, so I’m going to say good night.

I did it! Finished my first race! I loved it.

I met all four of my goals, too!

Running with a herd is super fun. I especially liked the point where the half marathoners, the 10k-ers, and the 5k-ers merged into one big glorious mess.

I will try to share some more details when I'm not phone blogging, but here are some pictures. The slightly sideways one is because I was trying to take a picture and run at the same time.

I can't wait for my next race!
