Being that I was unable to enter the Tamagawa/Kawasaki half in November, I thought it might be a good idea to run even a 10k before the year's end. Good weather and a flat course made the Ota-Ku Road Race a very comfortable one. I was able to drop my PB over 3 minutes down to 41:32 (although I suspect the course might not have been exact). With no markers, I had to rely on lap splits (3x around the perimeter of the park) and actually had some more left in the tank at the end. Either way, I'll take it...And the 7 km bike ride to and fro was a nice warm-up/cool-down. If only all of the races could be so close to home.
