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

Today's Shibuya Ekiden saw many podium-finishes, but no first place by the Namban teams. Our ladies were beaten on the last leg by a former pro, giving the win to the Chudai Ladies (BTW, that's our Ecomarron's team!), so, sad for Namban, but congrats to the winners!

In the veterans, well, age counts, and our teams average age - 48, was a bit high to go for first place, especially as our fastest runner, Fabrizio Rapponi, was injured. So, we were actually extremely happy to come away with a podium finish - placing third!

Your's truly had quite a boring race, nobody within sight, but thanks to the supporters for cheering!

In Namban-related news, a gentleman named Thomas, who ran for Brett and Omar's Yoyogi Park Rangers (sorry for inaccurate translation), showed an impressive finish to save their day and the second place.

Thanks to Mika Tokarin for organzing, providing me with a day of stress-free running.
