And our member Joseph Tame is all over the internet with his I-PHONE-run, hope he wil let us know in person how he did! 

Ethiopia’s Hailu Mekonnen won in a personal best of 2:07:35, followed by Kenya’s Paul Biwott in 2:08:17 and Japan’s Yuki Kawaguchi in 2:08:37. 

Well, great job, Hailu, but we still hope to see Haile back.

Chikara Omine is a monster. I still remember seeing him at Dick Collin's Firetrails 50 last October. He's amazing. I did a 4:44 trying not to push too hard coming back from an injury.

Seems like a lot of fast finish times around here. Congrats to you all! This was my first marathon, so I took it relatively easy with a 5:05 finish. I'm happy with that for now, because overall it was such a great experience. 

You can read a thorough telling of my tokyo marathon 2011 tale if you like.

Gutsy performance Vincent! Congratulations. It's such a shame that your marathon training went pear shaped back in December. But that's the thing about marathon training-CONSISTENCY is the most important thing. And a massive stroke of luck too; if you're going to get sidelined try not have it happen 12 weeks from the event. Your knee problems certainly contributed to your performance. Also your dietary habits 24 hrs before a marathon can also be a factor ie the timing of your last big meal. There's just so much for you to learn for your next marathon. 3:15-3:30 next time ( maybe sub 3 ).

The first one is always hardest! And it seems you know a friend of mine!

Looks like I brought up the rear at 6:05... the painful tale in full detail is here.

Yes, I saw him on TV last night, Way to go, Saitama!

Kawaguchi is an interesting character. He is a full time office worker for the local government in Saitama. Apparently he turned down offers to compete for various corporate teams. Even though he has a very busy job he's still running 90-100 miles (150-160Ks) a week.

Shows what you can achieve if you have that desire.

Congratulations gentlemen! Any other results?
