Watermelon marathon 2007









This year, we made the Misasa Okayama-Univ running team. We ran 5 km which is same distance as last year.

My time was 23 minutes 20 second for 5 km this year (rank 145 out of ~500). I have completely forgot my time last year before checking this blog. It seems that I ran by 23 minutes 30 second last year.

During the race, I forced myself to run on even pace and I thought I ran much faster than the last year. Let me say 10 second is significant and at least I maintained my running capability.

Japanese sea




Two months have passed since we (my wife and I) started to live together. There are many things that I want to do on weekend but I cannot do most of them.

What became clear is that I am happy if I see beach (sea?). It is such a nice day today. The height of the wave is relatively high. My grand parent's place is located in in-land sea and to see Japanese sea is still exciting to me.

Snow 2007





It snowed significantly. Since I purchased studless tires this winter which cost $500 and this is the first time to appreciate for them, I was sort of happy.

But, due to the snow, a flight from Tokyo was canceled and my wife cannot come and visit to Misasa on this weekend. What a disappointing! This is after a month since I saw her last.

I think about conservation of lack. I should not have felt happy about snow.

One picture is taken from my apartment and other is Glanza.

second thing in 2007

At the end of my stay in Tokyo (Jan 3rd), I got sick. Flight on 4th was terrible. After that, fever, belly, finally gut. The gut takes long to be cured.

My grand mother and parents visited me to enjoy hot sprint although really they took care of me. Too bad for them.

My preparation for the Japanese winter was not enough. I miss LA.
