Day 46: To Know Myself

“It was a much better performance than my previous time.  So in  that sense it is an achievement.  But my final goal is to complete 3100 miles.  So in that sense (new 4,000 km Japanese record) is just a transition point, to get to the final goal.”

“At each important milestone in the race such as 3,000 km, 4,000km, and so on.  People at the race do a mini celebration.  Something really fun and joyful.  So it made me so happy.”

“So as I was nearing 4,000 km.  I was looking forward to it because of the mini celebration.  So it was really fun and nice.”

“On the one hand, my feeling is I will be able to make 3100 miles the goal.  But on the other hand you never know what may happen in the next 10 days.  There might be some injury.  Small troubles happen all the time, every day.  At the end of the day I have to go one step at a time.  Clear each little obstacle one by one, towards the goal.”

“I am aware of the significance of the meaning of self-transcendence.  I feel that through my running I can better achieve knowing myself.  So running each day for the last 45 days has been a journey requiring me to face myself.  Looking into myself.  I would like to continues this journey of inner exploration for the last 7 days.”
