Running in Tokyo/Japan - Marathon/Clubs/Track Races

東京でのマラソン・陸上・駅伝・・・・・体を鍛えて、環境を守ってエコマラソン

"Only think of two things - the gun and the tape. When you hear the one, just run like hell until you break the other."

I don't have a photo of the Shibuya Ekiden but I think many, including nice videos, have been uploaded. So I want to add only my comments instead.

A big thanks goes to anyone involved in the organization of this fine day, especially to Jurgen, Mutsumi and Mika, taking care of all the entries & restaurant arrangements, making Shibuya Ekiden and enjoyable and memorable day.

As for my part, I run the first leg of the Master B Team (which, by the way, won over the "A" Team !). I kept a conservative pace since my legs were not fresh and I felt tired. I tried to pull away couple of times from the top runner but I could not feel my legs responding well, so that I decided to let him do the pace and just follow. About 200m before the finish, I heard Jurgen shouting to me "outkick him Fab!!!" and then one of my favourite quote come to my mind:

"Only think of two things - the gun and the tape. When you hear the one, just run like hell until you break the other."

The "gun" was Jurgen shout and the tape my friend and fellow runner Yoshida san waiting for the "tasuki" to change hands! I felt good!

...and... oh, yes! I overtook him, brought the "tasuki" as the first team and we won the Master division thanks to the continuous and great efforts of Yoshida san, Jay and Joachim!
