Today, a considerable group of Namban turned out for this conveniently located, but not too well-organised race in Ota.
There were no k-markers, so I took Gerards splits at certain points to try and time myself accordingly. The race had three loops, and after the first loop, I was just 30sec. back. After the second, it was about 1:20, but I slowed down just a bit to finish 2:25 behind, which is as close as I have ever…Continue

I run Ohta-ku Road Race 10km yesterday. My goal time was 35min19sec. It is the 2nd best for 10K. It's only 8seconds slower than my PB which I marked 4years ago. And, I won the championship in masters division. I have been very very happy! Good 2007 final race.

Course: Flat, Stadium no naka kara. 3 lap circuit.
The race was very enjoyable with the clear fresh weather and some namban crew to cheer at stages throughout. Quite a strong wind on the backside of the course (headwind) which we had to contend with for approx 1.5km on each of the laps of the race.
I was able to find a good pace and was able to finish strong with a 3.19 for the last km for a time of 35.10 and 4th position.

Today is my company's birthday. It is automatically "Holiday" for me.
Then I decided to jog with my camera and take some picture of autumn colored my favourite running course ;-)
I started jogging at 7 am. Here is Shinyokohama, sun rose up reflecting buildings in Shin-Yokohama. And a building on right picture is Nissan Studium (well known place for soccer game)

Too bad, I missed the chance to run another race in Korea. Just recovered from a stomach flu, I don't how well I would have done, though. I received the following mail from the guy who promised to register me (not anybody I mentioned before):
- 3. Due to my laziness, I forgot your race registeration when I fail
registeration of race. -
Now I know how well Namban registration assistance works!
I'll try again in March!
