I have just recently started running. I ran my first race on April 29, 2017 It was a 5K race in Singapore. My time was 18:37.4. I hope to continue running for enjoyment for a long time, and run in races occasionally.
Since my first race I have lowered my 5K time to 17:47.58 (June 30, 2017, Singapore)
And then again in August 2017 (while staying with my grandparents in Champaign, Ill.) I lowered my 5K time again to 17:19 (non-certified course, could have been longer or shorter, but probably fairly close).
I have also run 61 sec for 400m, and 2:13 for 800m.
Short-Term Running Goals:
I want to increase my training and become faster. I would eventually like to become the fastest in my age group.
Long-Term Running Goals:
I would love to continue running as long as I can.
I am Vietnamese-American and I am 15 years old. I am home schooled so do not run on a team.
I started running in the Fall of 2016 when my mom and I were living in Salt Lake City.
I love running everyday.
My favorite subjects are History and Math.
I would love to be a history teacher or math teacher someday.
I am currently (since Oct 2017) living in Japan because my step-father, who is an architect, is working here for 3 years on a large project.

There is a typhoon here this morning. It is my first ever Typhoon. Right now it doesn't seem to be so bad. The main force of the storm is supposed to arrive at about noon today.
