Welcome to my JogNote. We love Da-maranic!!
Do you know maranic? Maranic is new word combining Marathon's mara and Picnic's nic.
And Da is "駄" in japanese. For example We use 無駄(Mu-Da) which means waste. or 駄菓子(Da-Gashi) which means cheap sweets.
Damaranic is a race for excellent slow runners.
I bought some new gear for this race. These were following:
•Backpack with Hydration system, "Osprey Raptor 6, Old Model 40%OFF"
•Long sleeve underwear, "BIOGEAR", made by Mizuno.
•Tights, "BIOGEAR", made by Mizuno.
•Samsung Galaxy S4(docomo)
I received the backpack on Saturday. I put 1.5 liters of water in the Hydration system. Actually, I thought "1.5 liters" was so much to drink, but I thought it would be good for weight training, but it was empty by the 30 km point. ...もっと見る

I spoke the players oath at opening ceremony.
"We, The Damarers, swear to keep to the traffic laws of walkers. We swear to run slowly, (and as idly as possible,) so we can enjoying the scenery of Matsuura city, and we will run to the goal or use public transport if we take over 4 hours. (5th May 2013) Behalf of Damarers: T*** K***" ...もっと見る

Yesterday, nobody stood at the front row of the starting line, so I started in the front row. I lead the race, but I was not first to finish. I was able to act as the route guide because there was so many people who were participating for the first time. ...もっと見る

I see skies of blue and clouds of white...Is it the song about the view in this picture? This is the part of the song, "What a wonderful world". Actually, I knew the melody, but I did not know the lyrics. When I looked at the horoscope by Jonathan Cainer, I found this sentence, 'I see trees of green, red roses too...' So sang Louis Armstrong when he thought to himself, 'What a wonderful world'. ...もっと見る

It was very cold even though it was April today. My last race was "Kujyu-Ku-shima 100km" on March 24th. I remember that it was hot in the daytime during that race, so I took my wind breaker off and put it into my backpack while running. I thought it would be warm today, but it was very cold... ...もっと見る

The Damaranic official website is written as follows:
•The Damaranic is a marathon event suitable for slower runners !
•Taking public transportation to "warp" to the end is one of the authorized means.
I finished with a bus in this race, so I "warped"! I felt nauseous from anemia when I reached 60 km, and I rested when I was walking uphill sometimes. I remembered that I could not put up with the foot pain at the same place as last year, but this year my foot was fine... ...もっと見る

March 3rd is "Hina-Matsuri" in Japan. Japanese people decorate "Hina-Ningyou(doll)" to pray for the happiness of their daughters in this festival, so "Hina-Matsuri" is a festival for girls.
Today's finisher was a gift from the Damaranic organizer "Sakura-Mochi", because "Sakura-Mochi" is one of those things that we eat at "Hina-Matsuri". Sakura-Mochi means bean paste rice cake wrapped in a cherry leaf. ...もっと見る

I ran the Damaranic of "Takeo-Ureshino Kaido full Damaranic". Today's track was faithfully reproduced on a historical old highway which was called "Nagasaki Kaido" during the Edo period. There were two old highways which were developed at different times.
The first highway went from "Kitagata" to "Ureshino" via"Shiota". This road was called "Shiota Do", but because it was sometimes impassable due to floods, the road was closed. ...もっと見る

Today was the second day of "Tsukiichi Matsuura full". The track was not the same as the 1st race. Sansha-Mairi was included in today's track. Sansha-Mairi refers to Japanese people going to three shrines on New Year's Day. There is also an Osaisen-Bako which means a donation box. They believe God may be listening to their wishes when they throw money into the Osaisen-Bako and they make their wish to God. ...もっと見る
