CHIPPING away…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Caren Ware @ 5:28 pm

So, I am here in Japan with virtual realty. I am a day ahead of you. And minutes behind in life. My entrant to the marathon arrived 5 hours after the deadline and I have found out I have no confirmation into the marathon. Talk about queues. I am about to be one of those runners that has to beg themselves back into the system.
I came here to be introduced to the timing company, but not in this way. Guess it is a good experience to be on the runners that have a registration problem side of the fence. The timing company that is covering this marathon uses the same IPICO recoverable chip and timing system we are currently timing with at PRIME TIME。I have an admiration for the Japanese and how orderly and organized they are. Get this. Your marathon package tells you when to get up, what to eat, how to stretch, what to pre think about…good vibe ,positive thoughts. Not, oh my gosh. What in the world am I doing here. I am a track runner. But now that there is no packet for me, I really DO want to run the full marathon. The line is moving. I let you know what happens.
