Ogaki Mikan Half Marathon

I took part in the Ogaki Mikan Half Marathon on Nomi Island last Sunday. The weather was absolutely beautiful and on the ferry ride I took a few shots with the iPhone and edited them with the Best Camera App. This shot of Aki-no-ko-fuji on Ninoshima is my favorite.

As for the race. It was a harder course than I remembered, and the great weather meant it was pretty warm. Add the fact that I started off rather, shall we say, optimistically (at under 3:50/km pace) and took a wrong turn a few hundred meters from the finish I didn’t do quite as well as I’d hoped.

I ended up with a time of 1hr 26min and 16th place overall.
