My dad and me after the half-marathon!
February 1, 2010:
I have been living in Japan for almost 2 months. It has been a complicated, amazing, incredible, terrifying journey. I am loving life more than I have ever before.
The only way I can think of to improve it is to recommit myself to being HEALTHY. I miss running and I am looking forward to exploring Naha AND pushing myself.

"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."

"Hills make me strong!"

My weight loss goal is 115lbs.
I want to continue running! I love feeling like a runner.
Rotation of Upper Body, Lower Body and Core
I will look into joining a gym here in Naha.
I am 22 years old, currently Naha, the capital city of Okinawa, the southern prefecture of JAPAN! I team-teach English in one of the best high schools here in Naha and I have been here since December 9, 2009.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing." - unknown
"There is no use trying, said Alice; one can't believe impossible things. I dare say you haven't had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
The girl born on the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn has more will power and determination than another other. Jupiter is a natural born athlete with lots of FIRE and drive, but Saturn (who is Old Man Time) is wise and able to stay with and finish any taste. She is the master of her own life and certainly has no one else to answer to with what she accomplishes in her life. She needs an active lifestyle to PLAN and make use of her ability to ORGANIZE. She does like to spend money and give gifts, but she is a hard worker and gives of herself most of all.
Those born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp will help shape the future. They have an innate talent for sensing the way things should go and bringing them to fruition. They begin preparing themselves early for what life may bring. Their motto is "Always be prepared." Not the most patient person on the block, they certainly appreciate those who agree with their plans. If they don't find the cooperation they need, they will forge on ahead on their own with no problem.
Sagittarius-Capricorn understands the power in silence. They have the ability to utilize this to help their cause. Unless they exercise caution, they may find themselves alienating those they work or live with.
Sagittarius-Capricorn needs to temper their intensity. This will allow them to control their moods rather than letting their moods control them. They need to focus on building and maintaining social relationships. If they are not careful, they will close themselves off.
Sagittarius-Capricorn is practical and optimistic. They are outgoing, and can be very friendly. Responsible and reliable, they are good to have at your side in a pinch. They like things to work in traditional ways. They have a great sense of humor. They like one-on-one competitions. They are devoted to their partners, and great fun to be around. They like to explore new things, and want to experience as many things as they can. Hard working, they are not easily deterred from their goals.
The Cusp of Prophecy is known to be trustworthy, self-reliant, loyal, ambitious, charming, practical, economical, shrewd, fun, responsible, warm, funny, optimistic, romantic, playful, and enthusiastic. They can also be blunt, impulsive, vain, aggressive and quick-tempered.
Individuals born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp are inspired teachers, and they are very fond of children. They make astute observations, and make excellent critics, being just and fair. While they don't fall in love easily, once they do they are faithful to the end. They give their best and expect the best in return. Methodical and efficient, they complete every task to the best of their ability. They like to travel and have an affinity to language.
Sagittarius-Capricorn is a great thinker, and sometimes is gifted with prophecy to some degree. When these two signs work together in harmony, they have an unparalleled ability to create successful ideas and bring them to fruition. They have the determination to overcome whatever frustrations or obstacles as may arise along the way. If you really want to succeed, hitch your wagon to a Sagittarius/Capricorn Cusp to help you achieve your goal.
