Just having completed the 10 Km Run in Cheung Chau ( 第七屆長洲元旦健跑同樂及越野賽 ) in the freezing weather in the morning on 2008/1/1. I could only manage to completed the race in 56 mins because of the "frozen" muscle and tireness produced by the 10 Km race on last…Continue
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…Continue

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.

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)

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!

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
