Ran the First Annual Osaka International Marathon with fellow runners Adrian, Chika and Laszio in 4:42:47. Not bad for my first “Full” Marathon I guess! The conditions were rather good. Cloudy with sporadic light rain and an average temperature of about 20 degrees celsius. The course was pretty flat for the most part except at the beginning and at 39K where there was…Continue

Today, a bigger group of runners ran the Turtle half-marathon cum 10k at Arakawa River near Kita-Senju. This is a very big race, about 16000 runners, 12000 in the half, 4000 in the 10k.
As some of us went there by themselves, I could not get everybody's results, so forgive me if I start with my own race, the 10k. My target was a 4min/k pace, so Takashi Nobukiyo, our…Continue

Ran the 20th Nagareyama (Chiba) 10K Road Race today in another personal best 47:20 net. A very hilly course, every point seemed like either an up or a down, and many twists and turns. So crowded that the pace was very slow at many points and couldn't pass...maybe that was for my own good! A couple of people passed out on the way , I think the hills got…Continue

September was not a particularly interesting month - but I will try to amend my usually cryptic blog-style so everybody understands - hopefully. Would be nice if others did the same, so we could have some discussion about training here on the site.
4. 43k including darmstadt full - 3:51:56 - I ran this full marathon in Germany because I had made the pledge to run a 10k, a…Continue
