Inside the Temple pt.2

Via r32taka. One of my favorite posts about TRA Kyoto because he focuses on the spiritual side of the location.

The Running Temple acts as a Gau Box. And from living in a small house; a storage unit. Or how I like to word it, a mobile man cave. Lol

My collections of coveralls and work shirts. Some barely worn.

Perhaps waiting for the next PVT Run.

As I mentioned in the post Endless Dream before, it’s ok to have your #lifebuild act as a storage unit. Just make it look tidy. Lol

I swear this is going to be me in the future.
Confined into a tight space; I performed maintenance jobs from oil changes, brakes to timing belts. Such a small space yet I managed to perform all of those jobs. If that’s not JDM I dunno what is. ✌️

Best run pt 1

My life revolves around reminiscing. Lemme tell y’all bout one of the best runs I had.

It started somewhere around the red dot iirc.
The length of the run.

This takes place around 2011-12ish. My prime Running days. I had just left Matt’s crib and was heading home. On the highway, I kept hearing a BOV. As I look over I see a first gen Ford Focus with a body kit. The driver was already making eye contact with me as the BOV was going off. I nodded my head and pointed over cuz there was mad traffic in front of me. He let me over and we both got into the slow lanes to the far right. I looked over and nodded my head and gave him a look like “are you ready?” Old boy nodded his head and we both went for it.

This video also sparked the memory of my run. Notice at the last 22 seconds of the video that the camera car slowed down to give his homie an escape route (They weren’t racing each other btw). Talk about team work!

To put it into perspective the Ford Focus is the camera car and I’m the the dark gray Wharp EG in front of him. There were moments where the traffic cleared up and I gap him by big rig lengths.

Where the run ended is actually where I left off the gas to let him catch up. From there I cruised and waited for him cuz my exit was coming up. By the time he got next to me I rolled down my window and gave him a big thumbs up 👍. The driver turned on his interior light and was looking at me clapping his hands 👏 and gave me a thumbs up back 👍. I threw up the peace ✌️ sign back as I exited. That is one of my best runs I ever had. That’s how a run should be! I wonder if that driver still has that car? Maybe even boosted it more? If you reading this homie, Smoke some one for me! HAHA! ✌️
