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.
Going North, we stopped in Ashland, Eugene, Portland with a visit of the falls, downtown, and of course, Voodoo Donuts.
On the way back, we started from Cannon beach, stopped for cheese lunch at the Tilamook cheese factory in Tilamook bay, slept in Gold Beach, and visited Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park.
Visit of Boston to run the 119th Boston Marathon. Conditions were far from perfect with some wind and rain for some of the course but I still managed to run it in 3:15:34 or 7:28/mile. I am very happy to have reached this goal I set to myself what feels a long time ago now. Sharing it with Alicia makes it even more special.
