Do also check out my account of notable races I’ve ran. I’ve ran many but the races that will be featured here are stand-outs, in terms of size, prestige/history, race management and preparation and personal investment that went into it. Running PRs at these races are icing on the cake.

There are several must-dos races and they will be added to this site once I’ve accomplished them. The reason for running these (read my 2008 ING NYC Marathon report here) are more for the experiences than for the timing. The ones in my sights are (in no particular order):
1. Gold Coast Marathon (2011 | 2012)
2. Tokyo Marathon (2012)
3. 2010 The North Face 100 Duo
4. MR25 Trail Ultra
5. Nagano Marathon
6. London Marathon
7. 2011 Twilight Ultra Challenge
8. Berlin Marathon
9. Chicago Marathon
10. Osaka Marathon
11. Kobe Marathon
12. Kyoto Marathon
13. Nara Marathon
14. Mt. Fuji Marathon

If race reports are not what interests you, perhaps some shoe reviews then? Many models are not the latest but it’s still interesting to see the evolution of running shoes.
