SHIBUYA EKIDEN

Second place. Funny enough, I guess we always thought we'd get 2nd place, but we had a chance to win and we couldn't take it. I ran slow. 30 seconds slower than last year. I could blame my knees, the cold, my stomach, going out too fast, but really it's because I'm undertrained (which is because of my knees ha ha). Our main competitors, Harriers, gave us nearly 1 minute at the start because they forgot their sash. But they caught us because of my slow run. At the end they beat us by about 30 seconds (I think).



Overall, our teams did well. The Masters men won their race, and I think the women came second.
