By the way, the list of posts for this year's trip :
So we're now at Day Four. Man... I am so long winded about my trip reports. Hahaha
The start of our Day Four of our vacation to Japan in late November 2014, which was on Thursday ; was Me waking up a tad earlier to head out for a morning run before our planned hike to Mount Takao later.
With the weather report reporting a sunny Thursday, after a very wet Tuesday and Wednesday; it was sure a relief to be able to go out for a run. I guess others felt the same way too because I sure bumped into a lot of runners during my short run along the Sumida River.
Donning my new Under Armour jacket to keep the chill out, along with a new CWX tights (hehehe), I headed out from the hotel and headed towards Sensoji but then just decided to turn left somwehere and just run towards the river so I didn't run pass by the Kaminarimon Gate this time.
A runner spotted. :-)
Further up, I saw some interesting reliefs on the handrail of the river terrace.
And because I was in the vicinity of Ryogoku area, there were some Sumo moves reliefs on the handrail too. Way cool!
After about 40 minutes of running, I ditched my plan to run and the cross a bridge to get to the other side before returning to my hotel and instead made a u-turn and trace my earlier track.
Almost done now. A short run, just over an hour. Well, actually I didn't do much running that day as there was sure plenty of slowing down and stops to take photos.
Done with my run, then it was breakfast with the family after I had my shower before setting off for a trip to enjoy Mount Takao's fresh cool air.
