The Tokyo Marathon was on today. A very popular event. I applied to run in the 10km race but selection is via lottery and I missed out :( My last race was so much fun and I desperately wanted to run on the Tokyo streets, but it looks like I'll have to keep my fingers crossed for 2012. I went along anyway to cheer on the 33,000 lucky people who got to run today. I then proceeded to eat enough thai food for two people washed down with a gigantic beer. (It's a good thing I'm not in training!)
When I am in training however, I like to use runkeeper. If you're into running outdoors I can highly recommend it. The super amazing Joseph Tame also uses it. If you don't know about Joseph, have a look here. He is amazeballs! And for those of you who follow my twitter - I apologise for so many tweets while watching his live ustream today!
You can see some of the crazy characters that ran today here.
To all the runners - おつかれさま！
