今朝、その速さの秘密に迫るべく、コーチングをお願いしました。
This morning, I asked him to do his coaching for me, to find out his secret.

***

いや〜、心底、驚きました。
I truly was amazed at his coaching.

***

走りを、突き詰めて行くと、こうなるんだということがよく分かりました。
He has shown me the real important points of running – THE TRUTH.

だから、こんな記録を出せるんだ、ということもよく分かりました。
Now, I understand why he can run that fast.

それと、その本質を追究して行くと、誰でも速く、長く、安全に走れるのだとも思いました。
Now, I also believe that we all can improve our performance, in terms of speed, distance and sustainability(keeping on running without injury), if we follow THE TRUTH.

スゴイ人だ。
Truly a great gentleman.

単に記録がスゴイとか言うのでなく、人間性も素晴らしい。
I am not just talking about his records.
He has great personality, too.

まあ、それは、最も大事なことですね。
Which is very important.

気負わず、謙虚で、飾らない人。
Really a relaxed person.
Really a humble person.
Really a no-frill person.

しかし、軸は非常にしっかりしている。
But, he has the solid core.

ムダの無い人。
ムダを削ぎ落しきった人。
ムダを究極まで削ぎ落した結果が、非常にシンプルなランニング理論に集約されている。
つまり、生き方が、走り方にそのまま現れている。
いや、20年以上にわたる走ることへの取組/探求が、彼の生き方を形成したとも言える。
He has released and shaved all the unnecessary things.
As the result, his theory for running has become the simplest one.
The way he lives is reflected in his running style.
Or, I can say his running life of over 20 years, finding the truth, has made the way he lives.

今年、個人的に、指導をお願いしました。
I have asked him to keep on coaching me in this year.

Hi! I am K, a Japanese, living in Thailand. I am a vegan runner, and I own a very small vegan cafe, Bonita Cafe and Social Club, in Bangkok, Thailand. In 2015, I ran across USA, 5,030KM, in 79 days, from April 25 to July 12, thanks to all of my friends and sponsorship companies.

  1. What a fast strong runner. I admire the runners (and not just runners actually) who exhibit such humility when they have such talent.
