Misasa Ekiden (team running competition)

As a part of Misasa non-scientific activity, we participated Ekiden (team running competition). We made two teams. Each consists of 8 people and runs totally 14.07 km (1.8 km for each). Photo is before and after. Although it took efforts to create two teams this year, several people already promised me to run next year.

We are 30th (1:03:51) and 31st (1:04:38 ) place out of 38 teams. 108 s and 110 s per 400 m. My time was 0:07:47 (2.01 km) which is 92 s per 400 m pace. Cheers from sidewalk and a will to catch people up (or not to be caught) helped.

It seems that a head of Misasa town was pleased for our attendance and we got testimonial from him. Our goal next year is to be in first half among all teams.
