From Dubai to Tokyo in 3 days

Well, my Japanese is quite rusty (or, full disclosure, non-existent), so I have no idea what the above means, but I do know that we are closing in on Tokyo Marathon race day. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is less than one week to the Tokyo Marathon, and how have I spent the final week of preparations? Poolside in Dubai (OK, I have managed to include 3 short running sessions between my tanning and bathing, but that is all). Maybe not the perfect physical preparation, but I must say it was all worth it in mental wellness.

I have just about broken loose from the not so comfy seat at the Norwegian flight from Dubai, have emptied my suitcase of all beach related items and am now packing my marathon gear. The weather forecast doesn’t exactly look promising, with rain on race day, but that can change (hopefully), so I am packing for all eventualities.

Update: I have received translation of the above text from a reader (thank you so much) and the text means:

Well, no…the Japanese says:
“Tokyo Marathon 2019
Press Conference
(Wheelchair athletes interview)”
