Tokyo is a city that is best experienced in real as I have found it is hard to capture the spirit of the place.
We stayed in Shinjuku and then in Shibuya, two of Tokyo’s main hot spots. Great walks, great food, great time. We loved it.
Great 3-day round-trip to Kyoto by Shinkansen. We had great weather and managed to walk a lot to see the main spots.
Great weekend, not so great race. Even though the weather was perfect, I fell empty from the get go and was never able to shake it off.
Back to San Jose to run the Rock’n Roll half marathon for the 6th time (out of 10 possible) after running it in 2008 (1:36:59), 2009 (1:36:53), 2010 (1:29:53), 2013 (1:38:44), and 2014 (1:29:26).
I was definitely not in last year’s shape as I have been taking it easi(-er) since I ran Boston in April. The day was perfect. I ran with my friend Alex for the first 6 miles then accelerated a bit for a finish of 1:34:11.
I don’t think I will ever get bored of this place
