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


I run New York City Marathon. Goal time was 2:58:23. This was may first time NYCM. I had enjoyed it.
I felt a bit tired before start. I though I had damage that I had 100km marathon and full marathon 3weeks ago. My condition was not perfect. But, I did own my best. I am very happy that I finished under 3 hours.
I thought New York City Marathon was very tough event. The course was so. And, pre-race was very hard,too.
I got up at 4AM on the race day. I took a shuttle bus at 5AM. I arrived start area around 5:40AM. It was 4 hours before the start time. I must wait 4 hours in the cold outfield. It was long time.
I went to my start area at 9AM. It was 40 min before start time. I wondered that no one in the start area. I was 1st runner who stand in the start position.
I had big mistake! Summer time was changed to general time on race day Sunday.
My watch pointed 1 hour earlier than standard time. I had wait 1 hour 40 minutes in the start area. It was cold. My foot were freezed. Tough and severe.
It was very heavy event for me.

My official result is as follows.
