Ezo Fukurou (えぞ梟)

I have always been more of an udon person than a ramen fan. Most people (including my Japanese friends) are surprised by that fact because ramen always makes a very tasty meal, while udon is more for times when you need some hot soup or when you are feeling sick. After all, instant ramen is […]

Friday Run – 9/26/14

  Recommended time by Google is 2 hours and 20 mins. I actually thought this is closer to a 5 mile run than a 7 mile run and therefore I quicken the pace when the clock seems to be ticking faster than what I’m suppose to be going. Even I can surprise myself by how […]

Stumpy’s Marathon

  To an average person or even a runner, a marathoner is a crazy person. Why would you spend a couple of hours suffering out there in the sun (or the cold!) running/jogging from point A and point B? Ford invented cheap cars for us so we don’t have to run long distances! However, from […]
