Muskoka Long Course Triathlon, June 2008

Neither a marathon, nor an event that took place in Japan, but oh well...

The Muskoka Triathlon is actually quite an historical event, having debuted in 1992 as the site of the Long Course World Championships won by triathlete legend Simon Lessing. The event was put on back then by Graham Fraser,organizer of all the major Ironman races in North America, and continues to be run now by his brother Mitch.

Gasubashi 8k

Today, Admiral Paddy in his black suit opened the ports of glory in a way reminiscent of the glory days of the Tokyo Irish Harriers, days that are not mine to remember, as they were before my time with the club, but have been well preserved in the myth of Namban history. Paddy placed 5th in the 30's in 29:50, unexpectedly joined by Frank Mehl, who had kept his participation a secret, but finished in a respectable 32:55 for 14th.

Kamakura Trails

Today a considerable group of Nambanners ran the trails around Kamakura. As usual, it started at leisurely pace with a lot of sightseeing, but in the end a group of runners including Kiyo, Paddy, Jay, Joachim and myself picked up the pace.

The main organiser this time was Satohi, assisted by Kamakura veteran Jay and local Joachim, and they managed to find an onsen as well as a restaurant with a nice sea-view. Great job!

Only disadvantage, it… Continue
