  • Alright... seemingly simple enough,

  • a bit of a jog first thing in the morning...

  • here we go!!

  • I seriously wonder if this camera is picking things up ok...

  • like damn... its kinda dark here

  • oooh look! my favorite staircase!

  • aaand I am just realizing that this was probably not the best area to jog fir a video...

  • you see... this whole area is nothing but hills

  • thank goodness I only set the timer for like 20 min

  • yup I just sped up

  • trying to make the light while its still green to cross

  • realizing now that stopping at red lights would be pretty boring...

  • but rushing to catch them all might wear me out lol

  • ROCK | me | HARD PLACE

  • ahhh thank godness

  • this section is downhill for a little while

  • love this street by the way

  • these little dudes on my right...

  • always make me smile! like... hats!

  • and so many of them!

  • When I did this jog in my head, it took longer to get here

  • might have to stretch out my route a bit more than I expected...

  • totally thought this would be the thumbnail lol

  • oh!

  • love this little tunnel!

  • aaaand the sound of the rocks under my feet!

  • I once heard these rocks help create a metitative sound as you walk through shrines and temples

  • never fact-checked that... but I like ot believe its true!

  • had to adjust the audio in post here

  • that bang was originally LOUUUUDDDD

  • planning out a new route in my head

  • also.. listening to a podcast as I run through Tokyo!

  • ever listened to Reply All?

  • Love those guys!

  • look at that morning light!!

  • reminds me that the rainy season is coming...

  • ... so that's a thing

  • aaaand the light is red so Ive gotta cross

  • not too bad! different scenery at least

  • last-second course change! (was it obvious? lol)

  • still worried about lighting, so I didnt want to go between buildings just yet

  • but it was a bit early to loop back to the tower!

  • biggest worry at this point...

  • coming around a corner and ... PERSON!

  • or getting stuck at a red light lol

  • im definitely overthinking these red lights

  • I feel tall in Japan...

  • always look both ways before crossing!

  • also... for some reason stop drop and roll

  • Im not ACTIVELY trying not to check my watch to see my run progress

  • I do this... perhaps too often

  • but dont want to keep facing the camera down

  • I end up regretting this in the end though... (you'll find out why)

  • why was stop drop and roll a thing?

  • I did a podcast with Sharla lately and we talked about it

  • like we were raised to believe that we would need to know how to put out a fire on our body...

  • I think I heard this question somewhere once..

  • and it became a bit of an ear worm

  • havent been able to get it out of my head since...

  • at this point, im genuinely aware of my own breathing

  • and starting to wonder...

  • if this video is going to be the relaxing jog I wanted it to be...

  • or just 20 minutes of obnoxious breathing noises lol

  • actually had a whole chat with patrons after this

  • about whether i should keep it or re-record it haha

  • so... a little BTS there!

  • ...currently thankful for flat streets

  • thats something I miss about Asakusa

  • speeding up again to catch a light

  • this one was DEFINITELY a poor choice lol

  • like not only did it tire me out more than it should have..

  • but I also BARELY made the light lol

  • glad that bicylce turned

  • what in the world were they doing out at this time anyway?!

  • lol I guess the same could be said for me!

  • definitely pushed myself too hard a moment ago

  • but seriously... stop drop and roll?!

  • think about it.... more than one person MUST have set on fire

  • otherwise why would they teach that in schools?

  • I WELCOME this red light break lol

  • plus one of my favorite sections is coming up!

  • you would think I would have noticed that THE WATCH WAS STOPPED...

  • ...but nope

  • at this point I'm thinking...

  • well gosh golly gee! isn't this action-packed content

  • YAY Green Light!

  • If I had 3 enemies in this world, I swear they would be...

  • Wind

  • Rain...

  • and red lights

  • you ready for it?.....

  • BOOM! SCENERY BABY

  • (seriously love this spot though)

  • could NOT decide whether to go right or straight here

  • in retrospect... should have gone right lol

  • stairs were a poor choice

  • poor choices seem to be a theme today...

  • love the view from overhead walkways in tokyo though

  • gotta do a version of this entirely in VR....

  • Probably going to toss that up on Patreon

  • could Not decide which way to go...

  • couldn't remember where the right path ended up

  • went left

  • damn I love that tower....

  • fun fact:

  • you might have thought I got up early to record this...

  • you would be wrong!

  • I just didnt go to bed lol

  • yet another poor decision

  • that is really showing when I hit stairs lol

  • very breath..

  • many tired

  • so regret

  • checking my watch thinking...

  • its GOTTA be 20 min by now right? lol

  • wrong

  • ok... mental break for a min

  • hi!! welcome back!

  • these streets look super shady...

  • in Japanese we say AYASHII

  • ahhh crap...

  • thats a main road ahead...

  • I usually dont like to jog on main roads past 4:45ish

  • risk of too many ppl

  • and fml... its basicaly all uphill from here

  • yay!! loophole!

  • I just realized that my run tracker stopped...

  • and im not particularly pleased about it

  • so I have to try to restart it

  • without facing the camera down

  • if you could see me right now you would laugh

  • definitely look goofy af

  • 100% should have turned left here

  • damnit... people

  • so to my right, you will see a Sukiya Beef Bowl place

  • LOVE their 3-cheese beef bowl

  • ooo!!

  • hello VW!

  • oh damn....

  • I should have turned on the gopros GPS

  • Or I could have turned here...

  • but nope

  • gonna regret that...

  • in 3...

  • 2

  • 1

  • GAH!! HUMAN!

  • avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid

  • yup... almost hit that pole

  • so people are coming out already eh...

  • gonna have to wrap this up soon

  • announcements at 4:45 am sound very end of days...

  • I wonder if I'll ever go into a cafe again... hmm

  • still thinking about the gopros GPS...

  • that would have been a fun thing to add

  • you cant tell.. but theres an incline here

  • VERY Tempted to go into that backstreet

  • never been there before

  • and the more I look over that way the more I regret

  • seems like there was some cool stuff back there

  • and here I am running on a main street like a CHUMP

  • ooooh 7/11!

  • he was definitely speeding

  • the incline is getting worse

  • I might die today

  • gotta stop pretending to be healthy lol

  • this definitely connects with that backstreet I didnt go down.... damn

  • tiny truck!

  • you really cant tel that this is still an incline...

  • but it is

  • but seriously though...

  • 4:30 am in Tokyo is 100% my jam

  • there is like NOBODY in the streets of tokyo at this time

  • so the city is yours!

  • I miss being able to physically touch vending machines lol

  • the incline is getting so much worse....

  • kinda feeling sick but...

  • need to make that light LOL

  • yup...

  • im gonna die here lol

  • oh FML

  • CAN WE COOL IT WITH THE INCLINES FOR 5 MIN?

  • aaaaand everything is going white...

  • but the tower is right there...

  • like I KNOW it's on a hill...

  • could have picked ANY other end point for the jog

  • but noooooooo

  • just had to get that tower in there

  • seriously everything is white now...

  • gotta stop passing out mid-video wouldnt be ideal

  • didnt think the mic picked things up that well

  • back on the cafe thing....

  • probably not...

  • who knows i might!

  • by the way...

  • I miss McDonalds breakfast...

  • also as I wrote all this out...

  • there was NONSTOP construction out my window

  • and now it stops

  • isn't irony a beautiful thing

  • oh yea...

  • 100% doing a 360 version of this lol

  • damn look at that beautiful tower!

  • always loved tokyo tower more than the tokyo sky tree

  • sky tree is still good

  • last-second turn again!

  • but tokyo tower will always be my favorite

  • like LOOK AT IT!

  • I wonder how many people found these subs

  • the funny thing is...

  • THESE SUBS are the real video lol

  • ok let's head for that tunnel....

  • can probably use it to fade to black!

  • gotta cut it so it doesnt show that the watch only recorded like 10 min of my run....Grrr

Alright... seemingly simple enough,
