Great Weather for a Marathon

The Nagoya Women’s Marathon was held yesterday, and I went to watch it. The course went south along a major street near my house and then came back north. It was sunny, and the temperature was great for the runners, not too hot and not too cold. When I got to the street, thousands of runners were heading south, but the other side of the street was empty. Then the top runners came back north. The first group of runners I saw included the top four runners: the winner, Ando Yuka, the second-place winner, Eunice Chumba of Bahrain, the third-place winner, Suzuki Ayuko, and the fourth-place winner, Kaseda Rika.
