What will everybodys tactics be for this? Im not talking about the running, but rather the daytime tourism bit. Im not sure that walking around theme parks for 7 hours a day is perfect preparation between events, but similarly you cant go all that way and just sit in your hotel between races.
Im thinking of hitting up the water parks during the race weekend, then doing the theme parks the following week. But will all that chlorine make my feet soft and more prone to blisters?!? What if I stub my toe somewhere?!? Do they hire mobility scooters to healthy, able-bodied, slightly concerned 32-year-olds?!?
You wont regret doing Tokyo Caniggia33. Great event, quick course, big enthusiastic crowds and some typical Japanese quirks (ie, official feeding stations handing out cherry tomatoes and spectators handing out sushi). Registration opens on 1st August and stays open for the whole month.
Thanks MM. I decided to go for the All Star Sports resort in the end too (it didnt seem right to go for Movies or Music). The transportation thing was the real clincher. I cant even walk after a marathon, so driving is just a big no. Even the step up onto a bus could prove troublesome!!
For me, marathon days epitomise everything that is good about humanity. Whether you're a runner who has dedicated months of your life to raise money for good causes, or you're doing it for your own personal achievement, or whether you're one of the people on the other side of the barriers who cheers for people you don't know and have never met because you want them to achieve their goal. There's something about a marathon day that just makes you feel good. It takes a particularly evil person to target something like that.
