<Comment Fumiyuki Beppu>
It was tough in tough race。Also there was because of that pace first but I was tight from the lap was faster。2Zhou 3rd lap pace at the 3 laps do is I was not able to run it up at once、So we have a little delay there is also the middle out of the population。But I was going to have quite finish for this race、I only Tteyuu my own body was weak after all。It was also done after heat。1Because I drank three bottles each time Zhou。By doing the competition so far、Since I had never the experience of drinking and more than 1 liter down to drink more than one liter up、I it was very painful。Hot the Nde is weak I had to deal somehow or pour water on my head but ...。Made up of staff who has hard support、It is full of feeling that was not sorry for people who told me to cheer。

It was fun。But to the course it was difficult than I thought we have anyway hot、This time Nari to be 100% ready yourself、100I think% force was also Dashikire。Since the only deployment was as he had expected、Once it was more courses have their own direction、I think whether not it was leave a little more good results。But this time it has settle for that was put out 100% of their power。
