The Story Behind The Run
We always have self-doubt if you are a high achiever because when we try to go to the next level and there is thought we are not good enough, but that’s okay because that means we are hungry and we are committed to elevate ourselves.
There are several reasons why we choose Nagano, first and foremost, it’s accredited by both JAAF and AIMS, I’m not sure about JAAF, but B.A.A certainly accepts AIMs-certified one, besides, the time limited is 5 hours, thus keeps a lot of easy joggers away, and last but not least it’s almost a flat course with only few turns. That sounds almost perfect except one drawback. The accommodation occupancy of Nagano is limited, therefore all runners need to book the hotel via a dedicated system which does function but not good enough. Even though we stayed at the same hotel three nights, we still needed to check-out at 10 am and check-in at 3 pm every day.
“ありがとう Nagano and looking forward to seeing you in Boston.”
