The guys waiting for the train to Ome.
Me and my Japanese friend. She was kind enough to write my name in Katakana so people could cheer me on. It was awesome to hear Japanese strangers calling my name. I'll wear it again at Tokyo Marathon.
Here are my running buddy gal pals. Oh, wait...there's a Japanese man in there too! Oops!
Look at all the runners for the 10K race! Crazy!
My friend and I getting ready to run. Don't you just love the pink sun glasses!!
Here is the crowd cheering for us. They thought it was hilarious that I was taking pictures of them...usually it's the other way around.
Here I am running and taking pictures. One of my student took this picture of me.
Overall, this was a great run! I didn't run my guts out. Instead, I ran a nice, comfortable pace next to my friend. I made sure she achieved her goal today...finishing a 10K. And, that made it a GREAT race!
Just another day in Weenie's World!
