Yoshinogawa Riverside 10K

This past Sunday, I was back at work in preparation for the 2012 London Olympics as I ran in the Yoshinogawa Riverside 10K starting in the rural town of Kamojima, Tokushima.  Having already completed my first half-marathon recently, I decided to hang-with the amateurs today and show them a thing or two about running…  including, how I like to run with an Ipod and the cool new running shoes I recently bought…  The Yoshinogawa is the second longest river on Shikoku Island, it’s 194 km long and spans across all four prefectures on the Island.  It is regarded as one of the three greatest rivers of Japan along with the Tone and the Chikugo, and is nicknamed Shikoku Saburō (Saburō is a popular name given to third sons in Japan).  This scenic run along the Yoshinogawa River captures the beauty of Japan’s country-side, as mountains and farms can be seen in every direction.  On this sunny morning, I ran a personal best just under 1-hour in a time of 59:35!  Good enough to capture first among foreigners competing (unofficially) – I only saw two other visible foreigners in the race and they finished behind me!  #1  Hot
