I ran my 12th Honolulu Marathon on Sunday December 8, 2019! I’m super grateful for my mom dropping me off near Ala Moana Beach Park at 5:00 A.M. and then picking me up later at Kapiolani Park where we finish the race. She’s been doing this for me for the past 12 races.

On Monday December 9, 2019, I picked up my finisher certificate at the Hawaii Convention Center wearing my finisher t-shirt.

My sister Mia convinced my sister Lara and I to run this marathon in 2008. Β I’ve continued running this race ever since as an encouragement for me to continue exercising.

For 2020, I plan to increase my cardio and strength training to the level I was at 2017 and prior. Β My business projects have been struggling so I’ve been focusing so much of my time on work and neglected my exercise. Β I’m so pumped up to increase my training!

Have fun exercising!

With Warmest Aloha,Β Jon

I had some fun with Scott, Maki, my cousin Grant, cousin-in-law Christine, nephew, and little niece had some fun time together at Honolulu Beerworks


My friend Scott Imaye and his lovely wife Maki was back in Hawaii from Japan. πŸ˜ƒ

Here, Scott, Maki, my cousin Grant, cousin-in-law Christine, nephew, little niece, and I had some fun time together at Honolulu BeerworksΒ @honolulubeer , my first time there on Monday November 18, 2019. The macaroni and cheese with chicken and toasted bread crumbs was really good. β€πŸ½πŸΊπŸ˜‹

We all had fun playing the beanbag game. ❀

I’m proud of the #entrepreneurs in Hawaii who have created a wave of #microbreweries in Hawaii. πŸ‘πŸ‘Š

I rarely go out so this was a treat. Since I catch the bus for transportation, Grant kindly drove me home all the way on the West side of Oahu even though he lives on the Eastside so I could stay out later. 😊

Be present to absorb the beauty around you!


Live in the present an absorb all the beauty around you!

Practice mindfulness every day to consistently be aware of the beauty around you!

Mindfulness is a simple and powerful daily practice to boost your happiness. Simply be present to enjoy all the good things around you. Wherever you go, look around to enjoy the sight. Here’s a beautiful picture of the trees, plants, sky, and clouds in Waikele, Hawaii as I walked to the coffee shop. The contrasting colors are amazing! πŸ˜ƒ
