Win a medal as an athlete representing Japan!

I train everyday with a guide (a runner who runs with me) and run full marathons.
It is difficult for me to run by myself, and so I need assistance.
All your support is tremendous encouragement for me.
I will do my best so that seeing me run brings smiles to everyone’s faces!
