Frank-Arnaud Mehl was the one bright spot on an otherwise underperforming Namban team, finishing the 10k in a PB of 38:18. An out-of-shape Mutsumi ran 48:24, Juergen was happy with a 39:41, not too bad after recovering from a long-lasting cold.
On Dec. 17., in heavy rain, Namban Rengo as usually had the biggest group on an otherwise almost deserted track. One reason may have been Renard's presence, as he had moved to South Africa a few months ago and was just back for one track work-out! Good to see you again, Renard!
