New personal distance record: South Tokyo half-marathon

Tom and I continued our training for the Tokyo Marathon 2010 this morning with our longest run yet – 22.5km around the south of Tokyo. It was great fun, as we weren’t following any prescribed route, rather, just left Naka-Meguro at 7.30am and headed in the general direction of Rainbow Bridge, taking any road which […]

The making of Japan Podshow

Hello there. Joseph here. In a cafe in Shibuya, opposite Sakuraya and that bright pink real estate agent on Center-gai. I have an hour to spare before meeting *Twinkle*, so thought I’d pen a few notes on all the stuff that’s been going on. In this blog I’ll be talking about podcasting. First off then, […]

Big changes part 1

Hello. It’s been a while. With so much going on I’ve not been able to devote any time to blogging round here of late, although I am posting fairly regular audio diaries now in my podcast feed – you can listen to it without leaving the Mumble just by clicking on the play buttons in […]
