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


I run Chicago Marathon on last Sunday. Finish time was 2:56. It was good sunny day. But, it was bit a cold for Marathon.
So, Summy couldn't break world record. But,he established new course record.
He got a big money. $75000 of 1st prize and $100000 of extra bonus for course record. His time was just 1 second fater than previous one. Just 1 second! He got $10000.

I think the organization was good. The Course was flat and wonderful.Chicago is better than New York.(Sorry, Bob.)

Hi Kiyo! I met you at the Chicago Marathon press conference. We both have the same camera, a Canon TX1 and we were laughing about that. I am a video producer and shot some great footage of the marathon. In fact, I have you in it at mile 13!

Here is a link to my video:

Congratulations on running a great race and I hope you had fun and will run Chicago again next year :)
