4-mile training walk (Koenji<->Asagaya)

This training was dedicated to E.T., a fellow blood cancer survivor who supported me a few years ago and now is undergoing treatment. Two weeks before my half marathon to stomp blood cancers!

Hopefully, someday in my lifetime, I can say with certainty that I'm cured and 100% "freed"
 the possibility of relapse!

7-5-3 is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three- and seven-year-old girls and three- and five-year-old boys, held annually on November 15 to celebrate the growth and well-being of young children.
