This coming weekend is the city Ekiden race. It will probably be my last high school race. This race is not really a qualifying race, but is a chance for all of the city high school teams to run. I would love it if our B team runs faster than the A team. The first qualifying race for our school's A team is Nov. 2. I was hoping to be finished with practices after the race this weekend, but because I am an alternate on the A team, I still have to train just in case someone on the A team becomes sick or injured, which is not likely.

Thanks Sarah! Unfortunately, there is a VERY BIG typhoon coming this weekend to Japan, and my race for tomorrow was cancelled. So my high school running career is finished. I have really enjoyed it and the friends that I have made, but I am also looking forward to just being able to run now for fun without any pressures.

This whole area has pretty much come to a standstill because of the typhoon. Tomorrow the airports will be closed, also stores will be closed, no trains will be running, I hope it is not going to be as bad as they predict.

Stay safe Eva!

Oh my goodness! I hope you are all okay! That is so scary.

And yes! I feel the same way. Running without the pressure to perform well is so relieving. Itís so nice to be able to relax and do what you can or want without feeling like you have to meet certain standards. Now itís just you against your own goals!
