A good time was had, while slow times were run... Nanban Rengo broke with tradition by taking this race very easy, I saw two trophies which probably belonged to Gerard and Ed, but over-all, we ran much slower than in previous years, and all had good reasons for it, like Tokyo Marathon and Ome-Takamizu.
Everybody had a great time at this well-organised event. In the 15k, James Midgley beat Teriyuki Minegishi by one second (1:17:10/1:17:11) with yours truly following close behind in 1:18:18. I was not aware that is was running second in age-group, I would have tried harder. James and Terry finished top five as well. Rie Onodera placed fourth among (all) women, congrats, see picture above!
