Tokyo Marathon Report

I had a wonderful experience in Tokyo, and fulfilled a huge dream of mine – I completed all six of the World Marathon Majors. My husband traveled with me and also competed in the marathon, which was the best part of the experience.

The city really got behind the race with spectators lining the entire route. It was fun to see the race participants who dressed up in costumes, from Power Rangers to Jesus to Mario Brothers. I’ve never been to Tokyo before, and was impressed by how huge the city is – giant buildings and tons of people. We had time the day after the race to sight see, and the city is filled with energy.

Thank you all for your support as I made this dream a reality.


Tokyo Marathon

This week my husband and I are heading to Tokyo for the city’s World Marathon Major. This is the first year the city will host the marathon as part of the (now) six World Marathon Majors, so it is an accomplishment, I’m especially excited about.

Tokyo Marathon

I’m a bit nervous about the long trip, but I’m eager to have the chance to do this race with my husband in a place neither of us have ever been before. It is special to have him do this race with me, and we were fortunate enough to race together in the London Marathon last year.

Thanks for all your support as I trained for this latest marathon. I’ll be sure to share a recap of the race, once I return!

As many of you know, March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and one of the big ways you can show your support is by joining Dress in Blue Day on Friday, March 7. I’m also inviting each of you to join me for the Undy 5000 race on Saturday, March 29 to support the Colon Cancer Alliance. Visit my team’s page, Powered by Hope.
