I participated in Otawara Marathon.
I felt good during running in the first half and the pace was less than 3h 30 min.
Actually, I had a strain back November 5th.
My lower back gradually started to hart.
When I ate Yokan at 18 km point, I suddenly felt sick.
I was exhausted at once.
I vomited it at 20km point.
And then I ran slowly and walked.
I recovered a little after passing 30km point.
However the pace was suddenly slowed from 20km point to 30km point.
My time was over at the checkpoint of the remaining 5k.
I couldn’t complete the race.
I’m going to improve my lower back properly.
But I enjoyed the marathon after long time.
