Running Accomplishments:

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.

Total Distance


Ran about 10 miles fairly easy at approximately 7:00 min/mile pace.   I ran this with my mother.  I kept expecting her to drop off, but she kept up with me the entire way.  

In the park where we run, there is a large stadium with a track.  The city track and field championships are there this weekend.  I would have like to have run, but I learned that I would have had to sign up back in September.  I think I am going to go and watch though.

I am a little sleepy today.  I was working on a Physics problem last night, and styed up until I solved it.  It was a fun problem, and was a challenge to solve, but I finally got it.  I love math and Science.  Solving problems is kind of like a game or puzzle, and it is always exciting when I finally figure it out and get the right answer.


Was going to run this afternoon after school, but my mother and I decided to go to the hair salon.  This is going to be interesting since we can can't communicate well.  Who knows, maybe I will come out with purple hair or something.  :)

Nice run today. Are you still in Singapore?

I am in Japan now. I have been here for about a week.

I spent the first part of summer in Singapore, then returned to the USA for my mom's wedding (she remarried), then I spent the remaining part of the summer with my grandparents in Illinois. My step-father is an architect and has a large project he is working on in Japan. He came to Japan, in August, an my mother and I came a week ago.

We will be here about 3 years.
