What has Yuki Kawauchi been up too? He has been winning the last two weekends but times have been slow

Last weekend (August 22) at the second annual Nemuro Seaside Half Marathon he won clocking 1:06:39.  The participating runners traversing the extremity Japan's northeastern coast. 1053 people were entered in the event's half marathon, 10 km, 5 km, 3 km and 1 km divisions, an increase from last year. Every finisher received an entire hanasaki crab, the seasonal local specialty giving more than enough motivation to spur them on to the finish line. In the day's main race, the half marathon, 417 people were entered. Lining up alongside guest runner Yuki Kawauchi.  From views of the Pacific Ocean the runners passed through a pastoral dairy farmland scene and on to the panorama of the Sea of Okhotsk in the second half before a finish line in the heart of the town. Yuki posted this on FB. “I went to NEMURO last weekend. Nemuro is most east city of JAPAN.   I had run half marathon of "Nemuro seaside marathon".   Nemuro is cool condition(16〜22℃).   Course is tough,but views are nice. Runner can see Pacific ocean and Sea of Okhotsk.   And Runner can eat "TEPPO-JIL(traditional Japanese miso soup of the crab)" and drink milk after finish.   My finish time is 1:06'39. It isn't the good time. But I could do good training and enjoy race.   My next race is International marathon of Mobil New caledonia . My target time is 2:13:59.  Yuki posted this a few hours ago.  I ran International marathon of Mobil New caledonia today. My time was 2:18:18 today.   Today's race I was all alone. 2nd runner was 2:29.   Although my  time was bad , I was happy because a memory 10 years ago was revived.   I will challenge to break course record next year.   I believe I can do it.” (08/26/2018) ⚡AMP
