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.

I had a great weekend in Bintan Island.  It was so beautiful there.

I didnt do any running, but I did some snorlkelling in the ocean.  It was my first time to snorkel.  It was so beautiful.

Today I ran 6 miles on the treadmill.  I felt good to run again.

Today is mother's day in the USA.  I will talk to my mother a little later.  I really miss her.  I heard from her the other day, and she said that she has a surprise for me and will talk to me about it later, so maybe she will tell me today.

I am hoping she is going to say that we can stay in Salt Lake.  I hope, hope, hope, hope.

Yesterday, my mom told me she had a surprise for me.  I was hoping it was that we would be staying in Utah.....but no.  Her suprise was more of a SHOCK to me than a surprise.  She told me she is getting remarried.   I was in shock when I heard that.  I thought how could she meet someone that soon.  Anyway, she met an architect from Seattle and he asked her to marry him and she said yes.  I don't know what to think.  She told me that he has a large house on some island near seattle.  She said that there is a guest house next to the house and that Jon (his name is Jon) said that if I wanted I could have the whole guest house for myself.  The first thing I thought was that he thinks of me as the pet daughter that he can put outside in the dog house to get me out of the way.  I am really feeling kind of depressed today.  I have a father who is not interested in me, now this.  

I wasn't feeling like running today, but I went to the fitness center anyway.  Mr. Teo could tell that something was wrong.  I told him what happened.  He talked with me about it for a while.  He told me to try and think about it from my mom's point of view.  In a few years I will meet someone and want to get married and will move out leaving my mother to live alone.  She probably also wants to have someone that will be there when I am no longer there.  Maybe I am being selfish not wanting my mother to remarry, but I just can't help not liking the idea.  I didnt sleep at all last night.  I just dont feel like doing much of anything right now.  I ended up not running and just talking with Mr. Teo this morning.
