I ran a pretty good race, eventhough the time doesn't show it. Placed top-ten, target achieved. Just suffered a bit from the hills and heat, but that had to be expected.
Great weather and great prices made sure the turn-out for this race was as expected by the organizers. It's for a good cause, the Tokyo English Lifeline (TELL), and one participant actually managed 130000Yen in donations! Traditionally, many Namban members place in this race, and the Ladies' 10k was won by Yuri Kambara in 38:54. Jason Lawrence prevailed in the Men's 5k in a course record of 15;27.
