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


On the road to Western Japan, not on my Leopard, changed to a sturdier bike with  a shopping basket and only three gears because I carry more than 20kg of luggage.

The winds are coming from the West, and they are extremely strong, so, it's hard to pedal, but we can feel safe about the radiation - I have never been so happy about cycling against the wind.

On the way, I came upon a young Japanese on a brand new 18-gear cross bike, he was at the end of his strength, and still had 20k to go to his destination, Sakado in Saitama. I told him to draft behind me and advised him about which gear to use, slowed down a bit, and initially, he was able to follow. After about 3k, however, he gave up, and we said "Sayonara".

What if we had been running from a Tsunami, or a radioactive cloud?
