Was supposed to be running the Tokyo marathon last month. After 10 years I finally got a place (over 350,000 applications for 30,000 places), but tore my tendon (CT band issue?) in my left knee just after Christmas. That kaiboshed the run sadly, so sold my ticket to my colleague who ran it instead.
When i went t pick up the bib and stuff at the check-in, showed my photo ID and they put a wrist tag on, with a security thing built in. Cut it off, glued it back onto my colleague's wrist and prayed like mad (he'd been training for two months). Thankfully, the electronic tag didn't go off when he went into the starting pen.
Will start jogging again soon, now its warming up here. Should be able to get some decent runs in until late June before it gets too hot. Running in a Canadian winter can't be any fun?
