AUGUST 2011

LOOKING BACK, LOOKING AHEAD

AUGUST

Not much racing happened in August. We had good turnouts to workouts, however, with more than 40 runners each week and 50 on the 10th.
• On the 27th, Michael Tandler and Yoshitaka Ishikawa ran the Utsukushigahara Trail Run (about 36km). Out of 470 runners and walkers, Yoshi finished 7th in his age group and 11th overall. A great result! His time was 4:26:21. Michael was 47th age group, 50th overall, time 5:07:50. He said, “Landscape was really nice and enjoyable. The course was challenging, especially the last long downhill of about 8km and 1,000m difference in altitude descent.”
• Also, congratulations to Yoshida-san on getitng married!
