Last November, I had the opportunity to run a 5K around the Imperial Palace in Tokyo! It was a great experience and a beautiful race course. I thought that it was something they did monthly, however I cannot find any information about it online. I found out about it through a wife on base and she had her Japanese friend sign us all up. We had a pretty good showing but I only got pictures with my friends Mrs. S. and Mrs. A.
Pre-race photo ... notice the woman stretching in the background?
And we're off ... as you can see, it was a gorgeous day!

We finished our afternoon with a stop at Starbucks before taking the train back to Ayase
We hope to do it again this year when the weather gets cooler!
