It becomes clearer and clearer that my throat-problems are Tokyo related. It's minus 5 here at night, and even around lunchtime, when I run, only about plus 5, so I do my uphill repeats wearing a relatively heavy long-sleeve. Still, today there was hardly any cough when I finished!
Looking forward to the 10k race in Yeoido at the Han River on Dec. 1.!

I won the 5k at Worldcup Stadium today, in a ridiculously slow 18:45. I had wanted to run 10k, but my friend Jae had only a number for the 5... never mind, it was a good practice, and, as I started from the back, still a reasonable result, and good to win.
Team-mate Chris Doll finished the full marathon in 2:50:40, placing sixth over-all.

Changed this to a blog post. I am in Korea now, feeling better, so it must have something to do with Tokyo...

Today some Namban Rengo runners made the trek to Odawara for the 10km race.
Mutsumi, Juergen, Daniel and myself.
It was a successful day with Daniel, Mutsumi and myself making road 10km pbs. Juergen running solidy as well and surviving a little run in with a local kuruma.
It was a well run event, a scenic out and back course with a river running down one side of the track and Mt Fuji visible to the naked eye on the other side of the track.
The weather was crisp…Continue

Today the Seoul Flyers ran the Yonsan Base 10k in Seoul. I will probably never enter a US Base in Japan again, but the small races here are fun.
The Seoul Flyers had five runners, but organizer Jae Kim dropped out - not without taking pictures of the other members! Thanks!
Emily, our only lady, finished her first 10k in a sub 50min, great job!
I had high expectations in our two young Minnesoutans, Mark and Chris, and they went off like rockets from the start. Chris has a…Continue
