Tokyo Marathon 2014 – 4km Point

Posted in People, Places by tokyobling on February 23, 2014

I just got home after cheering on the Tokyo Marathon runners and wheelchairs. A cloudy day with no wind but still bitingly cold. First came the wheelchairs, speeding past in the blink of an eye. A few minutes later came the front group of runners. Since this was still only roughly 4km from the starting point everyone still looked very fresh and composed! I picked the same spot as I did in 2012, not too much clutter in the background and not too far from the starting point. Later today we will find out if I managed to catch any of the medalists in these snaps! This year too there were lots of runners in costumes, I will share some of those photos later on. In the meantime, Gambare runners of all nations!

    Cracking photos, they all look good…although it was early on! The weather looks pretty perfect for marathon running!

      Thanks Cathryn! I think they have been blessed with good weather these last few years. For most of the races there were rain, rain and more rain… (^-^;)

    You can see the power in the people – meaning you captured the essence of the race!:) Thanks!

    Wow you can always tell who are runners for serious and the ones that do it for fun. Those muscles! Wow! I have hopes and dreams of running a marathon and taking home the cake…but I also would love to make it to the Olympic Games one day as a runner in the 5K! I’d like to compete for Turkey since I don’t think I’d make the numbers for the U.S. LOL. But wouldn’t that be awesome!!???

      I had no idea you were so much into running! In that case you must come over and do it! (^-^) And don’t forget to contact the Turkish embassy… (^-^)
