Books I have just read

'Bikila' Ethiopia's barefoot Olympian by Tim Judah.2008.

Pretty good book. Nothing much about his training but quite a bit about his life after his second Olympic Gold.

 

'Run to Overcome' by Meb Keflezighi.2010

This is a really good book. Amazing what this guy had to overcome in his early life and also his many injuries.Lots of great race descriptions.

Ota-ku 10k

Daniiel (thanks for posting, see below), Masako and Juergen ran in today's race at Ota-ku. I had my new Brooks racing flats, and yes, ran an age-graded PB of  37:58, not bad considering the Garmin showed the course as 100m long, and I had run a half-marathon the week before! Splits were 3:35 (!) for the first…

Ota-ku 10 miles, Dec 19, 2010

So off to Oi Keiba Jo at 8:00, next to Haneda airport in Tokyo bay for the Ota-ku 10 miles. 7.5 degres, 57% humidity, clouds. Winds from the north. Race starts at 10:00, very well organized, 5 loops around the stadiums. I applied my new method, 9 minutes run, 1 minute walk. It's working well. I finished in 1:42'16", in 498th position. 12 minutes quicker than my race plan. And 45 minutes after the winners. I received support and cheers from officials and from friends from Namban: thank you…

Preferred Entry-Tokyo Marathon 2012?

Although I was very fortunate and able to run in 2009 and 2010, I was turned down this year.  I would really like to run again in 2012 but I am not sure how I feel about this "preferred" member scheme (especially since I do not know the amount).  Perhaps a qualifying time for a certain number of racers (maybe this already exists?) similar to Boston would be a fairer, cheaper option.  I've never been a fan of "pay-to-play."

Ogawamachi Washi Halfmarathon cum 10k

Today, a small group of about six Nambanners ran the Ogawamachi Washi Halfmarathon. It is a really nice race, well organized, with good support by the local community. Furthermore, the start is only 1.5k from my second home, so it is very convenient for me, and for my friends, who are always…

12 December: Tengu Trail 18K & 10K

Nice day to run through the woods of Mount Takao for this year Tengu trail race.



I joined the 10K, took a wrong turn and climbed the wrong mountain. Returned on my steps all the way down, climbed again (the correct mountain this time), fell heavily on my butt, fell again face forward but managed the regain my balance in time and just touched the ground with my hands. Run like hell in the last 3K all downhill to the finish line and recovered 2 positions.



Got 3rd in my age… Continue
