The 2011 Tokyo Marathon took place in downtown Tokyo on February 27th.
It was about 10 days before the earthquake broke out.

2 gentlemen, Jose and Carlos from Spain, participated in the Tokyo Marathon.
Hey guys, how was it?
Did you finish in the top ten?

I just respect people who can complete full marathon.
Completing the marathon is much harder than it looks.
It does not matter where you finish (number) nor when you finish (time).

At the turn-around point near Shinagawa Station, Tokyo.
I came to the point to cheer for Jose and Carlos, but I could not find them...

As the spectators cheered for the runners, the runners smiled back.
Tokyo was filled with sweat, heat, warmth and happiness.
It looked like Tokyo become one with the people.

Now, it is hard to smile.
Honestly I have been stressed out from unusual situation, but every day I receive
warm words of encouragement from friends all over the world.
“A friend in need is a friend indeed”

We look forward to seeing you next year.
Good luck with 2012 Tokyo Marathon!
