photo from jun takahashi's gyakusou event.

this photo is awesome in so many ways.

the track looks so beautiful and it reminds me of my running days.

i try to run whenever i have the chance / energy / time.

i do miss competing in races too. in the hills and stuff. i seem to make alot of excuses to run here and i've learned i'm better at doing things when there's pressure. like, when there is someone infront of me for a whole three laps and i just cut them off in the last 100m it feels really great.

this past spring, i read that book by murkami, 'what i talk about when i talk about running' and as i was reading it i didn't have many things going thru my mind as i would do with other autiobiographies. it was more like 'am i reading about what i talk about when i talk about running?' . i think maybe runners will all feel something similar to that. jun too, i assume.

anyway, i love that everything he is doing i am kind of really truly obsessed with.


can we be friends?

Whoa you saw Jun Takahashi in person? I'd probably feel tempted to bow to the ground and tell him "OTSUKARESAMA DESHITA!!" a few times but he probably wouldnt like that haha, he's one of the few people who totally inspires me in an overall way. I agree it seems like every single designer label is doing collaborations with some other brand but some work out in a really cool way.

And damn, I wish I could figure out how to get my hair to look like that (I wanted to do a bosozoku costume for Halloween). If you've seen Shimotsuma Monogatari/Kamikaze Girls.....Ryuji the Unicorn has the best hair.
