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


Just over 5 weeks ago, I was in a bike accident and broke my left elbow. It seems that riding on the correct side of the road and obeying the traffic signals, all without wearing headphones or using a keitai is now trumped by the opposite. I'm glad that I wear a helmet.

If any of you have a suggestion to these 2 main questions, I'd appreciate it.

1.) Do you know of any half-marathons in the Tokyo area in early November? This might be easier with a tangible goal ahead. (I may try the Namban race on the 7th, work schedule permitting)

2.)As I have started to run again 3-4 times a week between 6-10Km, do you have any advice as to how quickly I could increase the time/distance? I wasn't tip-top before the accident but I was fit.

Many thanks and I hope to make it out to Oda field this month!

Happy running,

Hey Pat,
well, you did the right thing already, putting your icon at, this is extremely casual, but should be a lot of fun, Phil Ryan (only "Ryan" on this website) is the organizer!
About increasing the mileage, this depends very much on the individual, you are a tall guy, so, be careful. If you feel anything odd, better back off...
