Yesterday, I took part in the 10k Öko-Run at the town of Wächtersbach near my hometown, both in the vicinity of Frankfurt. It is a remarkable race, as the organiser is striving for eco-friendlyness, by, for example, donating to a climate charity to make the run carbon-neutral. More about this at:…Continue

Had a good time at the Soma 10k though, the rain made it hard for everybody. The picture shows me with some of the volunteers and Takashige-san, the invitational runner. I was also happy with my 40:19, the best time I have run since my…Continue

On March 10., I ran my first half in two years, and succeeded in making the top-ten. Initially, the result showed me in 13th position, but it seems they caught some cheats. My time was 1:36:07, not bad on a hot and humid morning. Men's and Women's divisions were won by Germans, with Joerg Heiner beating Cambodian…Continue

Again, in front of the TV, watching others run, but in the afternoon, it will be my turn!
Impressive performance by the two African students on the second leg, even if Nihon University took the lead only for a moment thanks to Benjamin's superhuman effort, just to fall back to 10. on the next leg. From then, it looked like Toyo Uni would safely win todays outbound race, but on the last leg, they were passed by the University for Physical Education and Waseda. Great effort by Hattori…Continue

A typical Japanese New Year will always contain two things: Rice cake and Ekiden.
The corporate Ekiden in Gunma on Jan. 1., and the two legs of the Hakone Ekiden (pitching the leading universities against each other) on Jan. 2. and 3..
There are many good sites that feature the races, so I will not do this here. But I wonder if our members in other countries know what the worst thing in an Ekiden is? It is the 'white sash'! If a team does not connect because…Continue
A good time was had at this year's Turtle Marathon run along the Arakawa near Kita-Senju. Noone of us ran really hard, as it was a bit hot, but we are very grateful to the organizer for inviting us again. And Alistair and myself found a nice Tex-Mex place on the way back to the station that actually had two seats left…Continue
Sorry that we did not have a lottery and also gave up on the finisher cards this time, resources are limited...

As I have decided to watch the race on TV, I may as well write about how the top-runners are doing. In the early stages, a group of eight runners with Haile Gebresselassi and Japanese runner Masakazu Fujiwara followed the 2:58/k pacemakers, which actually slowed down to 3:02 soon. They reached 10k in 29:54, about the same…Continue
