I had business meetings in Tokyo on Monday, so I found myself in Tokyo for the weekend. I absolutely love Japan, and there are few cities in the world where I think you could never be bored. Tokyo is one of those cities.
On a mission to find what was described by DH as “the coolest running clothes ever” I found myself in Harajuku at the Nike shop. The spring/summer collection of the Gyakusou Undercover clothing line by Jun Takahashi just happened to be released on Saturday. I think DH has some sort of strange sixth sense about cool. As I waited to see if they had his size, I look up at the wall.
“If you have a body, you are an athlete.”
I love this.
I won’t bother you with my dull interpretations of why this matters so much to me, as someone who has found sport to be such a huge life enhancing choice. Doing triathlon has quite literally transformed my life.
This reminded me of one of my early blog posts, when I speculated about when I would *be* a triathlete, what it is that *makes* a person a triathlete.
We are all athletes.
Sometimes you can find unexpected inspiration just by looking around you.
And speaking of the unexpected, it is not only the motivating that I found in Harajuku. I also found the hilarious.
Meet the members of the Yoyogi Park Husky Club, dressed for girls day in their best kimonos.
Yeah. I love Tokyo.
