Juergen's Shibuya

I was so busy doing other things around this Ekiden that I haven't written anything about my own race. I felt good! I hadn't practiced any speed in recent weeks, just hills and races (see my HongKong posts). So I was very happy to settle into a good rythm right away, run the first k in 3:29, and even being able to almost keep the pace. I passed one guy very soon, and then Bob shouted:"There is somebody 25 seconds ahead, catch him!" That kept me motivated, and I actually passed the runner…

Shibuya Ekiden Teams

Shibuya Ekiden is usually the biggest event of the year for Namban Rengo. Definitely not because it is a particularly famous race, probably because it is in our 'home park', and very easily accessible. I still need substitutes an helpers, please join!…

Cheung Chau Island 10k/HK

Today I ran the last of my three races in Hong Kong, 10k on Cheung Chau island this morning at 10am. I was in bed before 12, so I was relatively fit this morning, but obviously, the fatigue of two races showed. And the course was extremely hilly and probably a bit long. I placed 5th over-all and 2nd in age-group, getting another nice trophy. My time was 43:17, Gary Eng ran 54:26, the winner was not too far ahead of me, so…

Shek Kong 10k/30k Hong Kong

Yesterday I ran the 10k, the shorter one of the two 'undulating' courses near Shek Kong in Hong Kong, and I finished in 38:46, a very good result on a challenging course. Just my splits on the first 3k are proof for this: 3:43/3:30/4:22!

I placed 2nd in age-group and 3rd over-all, got lots of stuff and a nice trophy!

Here the longer version of my story:

Undulator 2 - Spiridon's Revenge

Like eight years ago, I'm passing…

Boxing Day Run, The Peak, Hongkong

On the 26., Jay and I ran the Boxing Day Run in HK. It is only 4k, mostly uphill in the beginning, followed by a steep downhill in the end. I pushed at the start, trying to follow Mark Reeves, who was actually leading our age-group. I caught up with him at the highest point, just to loose him again on the downhill, finishing second by 3 seconds. I would have easily won the 50's, by about two minutes, I think. We got all…
