Today was the 15th anniversary of the Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake or the Kobe Earthquake. In 1995, the city of Kobe was flattened by a 6.8 magnitude earthquake.
Here is a short video I made today while visiting a photography exhibit about the disaster.
On a lighter note, I picked up a new pair of running shoes today. I have been battling an old tendon injury recently and hopefully new shoes with better cushioning might help. I am a loyal ASICS man and wear the Gel Kayano series since they offer the best foot support. I have low arches and these shoes are designed for folks like me.
Here is the brand new model in the Gel Kayano series. This is the Gel Kayano 16. I went for an 8 km run this evening in them and they felt great.
