IN­TER­NA­TIONAL RE­LA­TIONS

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

My wife spot­ted a fa­mil­iar face in your April is­sue – Masami Yabuta from the Full Hyaku Run­ning Club in Ja­pan. We met him and some other mem­bers of the club last year when I went to do the Tokyo Marathon. We were looked af­ter tremen­dously well and, later in the year, hosted a few of the club’s mem­bers when they came over for the Water­ford Vik­ing Marathon. This is what makes our sport so spe­cial – the peo­ple we meet and the friend­ships we make along the way. Liam Smith, Ath­gar­van, Co. Kil­dare, Ire­land
