Doing what you love…

… even if NO ONE understands.

Often time I get asked, ‘why don’t you do anything with your hair’ ; ‘why don’t you get highlights’ or they say ‘I liked it better when it was shorter’ ; ‘I liked it better longer why did you cut it’.

I’ve decided my hair looks infinitely better after running and showering at the Run Cube.

Not to be all *I look awesome right now*, but I’ve decided that there has to be something in the water, or hair products, at Run Cube that make my hair always look GD awesome after a run and shower. I really don’t want to think about the fact that it may be related to whale parts, which apparently make it into cosmetics over here. I really need to learn to read.

Run #2, Run point #2: Run Pit

a- it’s November, so it’s cooler
b- it’s November, and almost my birthday
c- I’ve been in something like recovery since we got here, and now I feel like I can run again!

I was right: workers speak English at the run spots!

Following my last post, I closed out a few lessons on a slow day and took a walk over to check out Run Pit and Run Cube in more detail.

Imperial research: trying to find a place to take a shower

hi again!

As I said in a previous post, I’m working on finding a place near my work where I can ditch my clothes, run and then shower AFTER the run. This is a really popular thing to do in Tokyo, and there are multiple locations situated at different points around the Imperial Palace.
