I took part in Kwaguchi marathon .it was one of big race in Saitama.I tried to break 19' 00".
My condition was pretty good ! I could relax and concentrate while the race.So I could keep
a 3'45" pace on a flat course. Also I was following the top group still 4km potint. Last 500m
,it was hard to take breath tough I could do a last spurt. Finally I finished in 18'53".And I got
the first prize out of 300 women. I was very happy to get a gold trophy!!
