Nike 10 K Challenge 2008 - 2008/11/23

I took the N969 at 0510 hrs to attend the race today. I was happy to meet MJ after leaving the bus, and nice to had breakfast with MJ too. Due to lack of slep and worry of my back pain, I did not push myself hard. I managed to complete the race in 51 mins. My running shorts was completely dry after the run indeed.

I was happy to meet so…

Mara Yamauchi visits Oda Field!

Today Olympian Mara Yamauchi, who came in 3rd in Sunday's Tokyo International Women's Marathon in a PB of 2:25:03, visited Namban Rengo at Oda Field!

I felt really honored when she said that her running career in Japan started with Namban Rengo. For those who do not know, some Sunday in early 1998 (if I recall correctly) Siu-Fong Ma and myself ran a time-trial in Enoshima. Ma raced agains a young British lady named Emma. She lost the… Continue

It's been a while since my last race (Honmonji 10K). I figured what better way to get back into it than to run my first official Half Marathon. Although the weather was wet beforehand, it was actually cool and comfortable during the race. I pulled in at 1:41:10, well under my target of 1:45:00. The first 10K was slow (49:57) but I was able to get it together on the back half (splits around 4:35). Happy: yes. Sore: もちろん。 I wonder how I would… Continue

Odawara Houtoku 5/10k

This is just the best little semi-inaka race in the area!

All race-officials should be trained there!


Gerard - 34:48 Stuart - 37:29 Mutsumi - 46:00 Daniel - 56:09 Juergen - 18:29 (5k)

Not much to add to Daniel's praise, well, the soba-shop and the onsen were also great!

I was happy to run 18:29, considering I had not practiced for the 5k, and place 4th - just too bad I didn't have the 8 seconds to catch the… Continue
