走る! Run!!

I went to see a marathon race today. It was amazing. My friend run about 42km, so kept running for almost 4 hours. I admired those runners. Marathon is a sports that you have to fight with yourself. You must be hard on yourself, and have a full of self-developments. I may be beaten... I cannot control myself because I cannot kick the habit of eating ice cream every night...


The social gathering went well! About 30 internationals and Japanese came. I think I finished it without a hitch because everyone cooperated the game and the event. I'm really thankful for them! My concern was worth it!

    I remember one time. It took me about 25 minutes to walk to work each day. 50 minutes to go there and back. I usually took my rollerblades, so it would only take me 20 minutes to get there... or was it a half an hour walk... ya! Half an hour to walk, 20 minutes on rollerblades, cause I like to go slow. Anyway, 20% of the time I rollerblade somewhere I always forget my shoes. So I got to work with 10 minutes left until I had to start working. Work was like school, never late, never missed a day. That day I realized that I forgot my work shoes at home, CRAP! So I thought... hmmm, I have 10 minutes before work starts... Can I make a 40 minutes trip in 10 minutes? Hell yes I can! So I told them I would be right back, just in time for work. But with all the talking, I had only 8 minutes before I had to starts work. I stuck my rollerblades on and booted it (Booted it... um... to run, in a hurry, really fast... booted it) down the street as fast as I could. I pumped the whole way home and back, as hard as I could (pumped... when you push off with your feet to make yourself go, like in figure skating.). It was no Marathon mind you, I hate running, unless it's free running, I love free running, but it was very very tiring. I made it in 10 minutes.... but I was still 2 minutes late, because of the 2 minutes I spent talking before. I was panicking about being late and my boss told me I was being stupid. I also almost passed out because I was dehydrated and my body didn't know what to do. I was beet red and my body was shaking. I ended up having to sit in the back to calm down for an hour before I could start work. So I was basically an hour and two minutes late in the end. I still made it in 10 minutes though, because I'm awesome!

    Alright, boring story over! I'm glad you enjoyed your day. My easter was a bit... pooey, for lack of a more dignified term.

    Sorry メイソンくん, but you messed up in your introduction... have I taught you nothing?

    He is right though, keep it up, Reiko

    And you only say that the pictures are void (Not valid, they do not count) because you were drunk.
