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.  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.  My business projects have been struggling so I’ve been focusing so much of my time on work and neglected my exercise.  I’m so pumped up to increase my training!

Have fun exercising!

With Warmest Aloha, Jon

When times get tough, love yourself more! ❤️


When times get tough, love yourself more! During times of hardship, having alone time to replenish your energy is important. Activities such as self-reflection, meditation, reading, taking a nice walk outside, listening to a motivating podcast, journaling, drawing, designing, and creative writing can lift your spirit.

My friends, if you’re going through a slump, I feel you. There are days, I get up and question myself. “Why do I keep going?” When I restate my personal mission statement, I’m empowered by my “why,” so I keep doing my best. Sending positive energy to you! 🙌

Do you get high off of running and walking?


Running gives me the runner’s high with the #endorphins and #dopamine kicking in. 🏃‍♂️

Walking and absorbing the beauty of the sky, clouds, and sunset puts me in a powerful state of presence where I feel a #spiritual and #emotional connection with the beauty of my surroundings. ⛅

Here’s a picture of the sunset in Waikele, Hawaii on March 14, 2019.

Do you get high off of running and walking? 😀

1st Exercise of 2019


I ran 4.19 miles on the 1st day of 2019! The sun was out, and the air was crisp and cool. I’m wore my 2017 @honolulumarathon shirt, @asics Kayano 23 shoes and socks, @underarmour shorts, and @armpocket case for my @samsungmobile Galaxy S7 Edge. I really enjoy using my @bose soundsport for exercise and everyday use. In 2018, I exercised 214 times. I plan to exercise at least 200 times in 2019 but with more intensity. Have fun with you 2019 exercise goals!

Exercise is a Super Practice


I ran just under 3 miles in the crisp air. Exercise is one of the key practices to boost our physical, mental, and spiritual health. It’s a super habit, along with sleep and gratitude that makes us feel unstoppable with what we set ourselves out to do!

St. Louis Drive Inn in Honolulu, Hawaii after the 2018 Honolulu Marathon


I’m so thankful for my mom who has been waking up about 3 a.m. every year to drive me from the Westside of Oahu to the Honolulu Marathon’s starting line by Ala Moana Beach Park. Then she picks me up at about 10 a.m. at Kapiolani Park after I complete the run and receive my medal, shell lei, finisher shirt, malasada (Portuguese fried donut), banana, and Gatorade or water.

After finishing the Honolulu Marathon on Sunday December 9, 2018, my mom and I went to St. Louis Drive Inn for lunch. My mom had an apple turnover and coffee. I chose the fresh seafood plate, which includes sashimi, mahi mahi, shrimp tempura. Ono! (Delicious in Hawaiian language). If you haven’t tried St. Louis Drive Inn yet, or are a visitor wanting to eat what the locals in Hawaii eat, check the drive inn out at 3145 Waialae Avenue, Honolulu, Hawaii.
