2014 Wrap Up

Well, I’ve officially had my longest blogging hiatus of 3 months. Whoops! I’d like to get back to blogging regularly. For most of the fall I was working 7 days/ week and felt like I had no free time. The few hours I had at home before bed were just to shower and get ready [...]

My time in Japan is now over. While I do plan to visit, I am no longer an expatriate, no longer a resident of Tokyo. It’s all so strange. I think it will sink in better once I’m settled in Seattle (still on the road!). I have also been horribly sick since the day I [...]

It’s officially 2014 here in Japan! Dan and I weren’t sure how to ring in the new year- a quiet night together at home, or out with friends? We decided to do both! We went to the Samurai New Year’s Eve hash, toasted and kissed at midnight, spent a little more time socializing, then headed [...]

In Japan, it’s officially Christmas! I am worn out! We last left off Sunday night, when I successfully completed my last 20-miler for Goofy training. The next day, Monday, Tokyo Hash House Harriers was having their Christmas run and party. It was my last free Monday before I leave, so I figured I might as [...]

Saturday- Samurai Jingle Bell Run (Samurai Hash House Harriers) Yesterday (Saturday) Dan and I chose to run at the Samurai hash because A- it was a Christmas run, B- [...]

Goals for this weekend: go for a 9 mile run Saturday and a 13 mile run Sunday. Buy and pack boxes for the move. Bake gingerbread men for a Christmas party on Tuesday night. Sushi date with Dan. Snoopy exhibit at Mori Tower. But none of this got done because I caught a nasty cold!! [...]

Big News! I’m Moving!

I’ve been putting off blogging about this for a while, and once I wrote it out, I sat on it for even longer. Maybe I kept thinking I’d change my mind. Or I’d find a perfect job here in Tokyo. Or all my US family and friends would decide to move to Japan. But those [...]

I’m ridiculously pleased to say that training for Goofy’s Race & a Half Challenge is going really well. Or at a minimum, FAR better than last year (when I didn’t train). I haven’t missed a distance run yet and my mileage is climbing. When it was time to run 16 miles I couldn’t fathom it. [...]

Where have I been?! I’ve had company in town! My friend Amanda, who came to visit me last spring, returned for a couple weeks with her boyfriend Steven. We had an absolute blast- Dan and I aren’t hermits per se, but we definitely get out more when we have friends in town! Some high lights [...]
