Today I went with my orchestra to cheer at Itabashi City Marathon by playing music!
It was really nice to watch so many people participating, from elementary school first grade students, to elder people, and even people in wheelchairs. It felt really good watching people in wheelchairs enjoying the time together with other people, including the ones who were pushing them! Really a big plus in this event, in my opinion.
Of course, depending on the category, there were different courses.
A friend of mine did the main course in around 3 hours and 26 minutes! Really fast!
They estimated a total of approximately 17 000 runners only in the main run!
