Tokyo Marathon 2009


The third time Tokyo marathon was held today.!
Every year we left home around 6:30 in the morning.
There is an atmosphere that people are exicited and kind of nervous in the west entrance
of Shinjuku station.
There were much more people who cheered someone up than last year.
So we couldn’t find mother around at the point of 10km.
We waited for her at the point of 20km,32km and 40km and cheered her up while
saying “ Keep going! “ aloud.
Every year we run on the side of the road while cheering her up. So we’re really tired
even if we don’t run full marathon. But seeing her, it was really lucky she was able to
run the marathon. And we also feel happy for her.
She is over 60. But she didn’t slow down and her time was the same as Pro athlete.
There are a lot of task in life. But I thought it’s OK you do even one of them hard
and you get confidence from it.
