The photo has nothing to do with the contents of the diary.
I dare describe it as « finally » coming. But I really think so.
Even though it’s October, it’s still hot and humid compared to other months of the year, but my favorite season of the year, October, is finally here.
It’s also because it’s easy to spend time there, but I like October because I was born in October.
illegal downloading (e.g. of copyrighted works)
It seems that the illegal downloading law came into effect this month, but it doesn’t affect me at all, does it? No, if it had, it wouldn’t be so good.
I rarely watch videos, especially on TV, and most of the music is out of copyright because it’s mainly classical music, or perhaps the performers themselves have copyrights, but it’s music that has nothing to do with the so-called « regulatory bodies » in Japan.
So, while I think the copyright ideas involved in this bill are certainly outdated, I’m not sure if it’s a bill that’s making enough noise in the world.
National Sweets Marathon
I will participate in the National Sweets Marathon in Chiba.
I’m going to take on the challenge with 9 of my friends from Grain Oke and Little. I’m a little worried because I haven’t been able to run much lately, even though it’s a relay marathon.
But I’m really looking forward to it. In fact, I’m starting to want to attend the Tokyo tournament in December…
Tokyo Marathon and Kyoto Marathon
Unfortunately, I missed the lottery again this year. I’ve applied four times and won twice, and the winning rate, which used to be 100%, has been declining every year…
However, I am also applying for the Kyoto Marathon this year. I think the hurdle to win this marathon is lower than that of Tokyo Marathon because the ratio is 3.3 times. I hope I win.
Even though the result of the Tokyo Marathon was disappointing, I honestly think that a ratio of more than 10 times is abnormal. I may be a sore loser, but I’ve already experienced this twice, so I honestly think it’s impossible to keep my motivation as high as before.
However, I still want to have fun while challenging myself to a marathon.
So I’ve been thinking about running a marathon overseas, as well as the Kyoto Marathon that I mentioned earlier.
Specifically, the following marathons
- プラハマラソン http://runnet.jp/runtes/oversea/praha.php
- メドックマラソン http://runnet.jp/runtes/oversea/medoc.php
- ローマシティマラソン http://runnet.jp/runtes/oversea/rome.php
For my personal preference, I only go to Europe, but I like to have a « time limit of at least 6 hours and 30 minutes » and « beautiful scenery that changes rapidly so I never get bored.
So, as I’ve been a bit slow with my diary lately, I thought I’d just write down my thoughts. But most of them have nothing to do with October (laughs).
