Ota-Ku 10k

Today, a considerable group of Namban turned out for this conveniently located, but not too well-organised race in Ota.

There were no k-markers, so I took Gerards splits at certain points to try and time myself accordingly. The race had three loops, and after the first loop, I was just 30sec. back. After the second, it was about 1:20, but I slowed down just a bit to finish 2:25 behind, which is as close as I have ever…

Ohta-ku Road Race 10km

I run Ohta-ku Road Race 10km yesterday. My goal time was 35min19sec. It is the 2nd best for 10K. It's only 8seconds slower than my PB which I marked 4years ago. And, I won the championship in masters division. I have been very very happy! Good 2007 final race.

Course: Flat, Stadium no naka kara. 3 lap circuit.

The race was very enjoyable with the clear fresh weather and some namban crew to cheer at stages throughout. Quite a strong wind on the backside of the course (headwind) which we had to contend with for approx 1.5km on each of the laps of the race.

I was able to find a good pace and was able to finish strong with a 3.19 for the last km for a time of 35.10 and 4th position.

Mitake Mountain Marathon trail run

Here are results and comments from Sunday's 15-kilometer Mitake Mountain Marathon trail run:

Mark Feeley 1:27:01 (72nd overall out of 900 registered)

I thought the course was great and I just tried to relax and enjoy the scenery. After 45 minutes I was surprised to see a sign for 5km to go. I felt too good and thought I hadn't been pushing hard enough. There was a lot of climbing in those last 5km though and I was definitely tired at the end.

When Jay and… Continue

Running in Yokohama (Chika's running course)

Today is my company's birthday. It is automatically "Holiday" for me.

Then I decided to jog with my camera and take some picture of autumn colored my favourite running course ;-)

I started jogging at 7 am. Here is Shinyokohama, sun rose up reflecting buildings in Shin-Yokohama. And a building on right picture is Nissan Studium (well known place for soccer game)

This is…

Tanzawako Marathon - 25NOV07

Tanzawako Marathon was meant more for a day trip out of Tokyo than a race. In fact, having just come back from Ohtawara, I was undecided if to go or not until the very last minute and this indecision took me there just 10 minutes before the race start! My warm up was from the bus stop to the desk to collect the race number, run back to the start line, pass all my clothes to my son and run! I joined the 5K and finished 5th in the over 40 category in 17:39. Quite few… Continue

No race today...

Too bad, I missed the chance to run another race in Korea. Just recovered from a stomach flu, I don't how well I would have done, though. I received the following mail from the guy who promised to register me (not anybody I mentioned before):

- 3. Due to my laziness, I forgot your race registeration when I fail
registeration of race. -
Now I know how well Namban registration assistance works!

I'll try again in March!
