Team K’s Sayaka Akimoto is going to participate in this year’s Tokyo Marathon. She’s decided to run the race because of the scandal she had in October 2010 which made Sayaka relinquish her position as Team K leader (a position which is still yet to be filled). She wants a fresh new start in 2011 and to challenge hard tasks without running away from them. Sayaka is being trained by a woman who won a marathon in Greece in 2009. The race will be broadcasted live on Fuji TV at 9am on February 27th if you’re interested in watching it.
Good luck in the race Sayaka.
