■ About this activity, running adviser Megumi Oshima’s comment In fact, when I ran through Tokyo, I was able to discover a lot of fun, such as interactions with people in the streets and areas that I did not usually notice. I hope everyone will enjoy a better running life by acquiring not only technical forms but also the correct knowledge of body care, hydration and nutrition intake.
