Visiting some places for running gives me encounters by chance.
The following 2 cases happened from Dec. 2012 to Jan. 2013.
First, I joined a tournament held in Kanagawa on December.
At that sort of a tournament, entrants have to line up and wait for a long time before a start. While waiting, I usually have such feelings as exciting and also boring.
However, I could relax and enjoy myself at the Kanagawa tournament because of an interesting conversation with a lady next to me by chance.
She had a lot of experiences for running tournaments at home and abroad.
She talked about good tournaments, trainings, sports wears, and so on.
I want to be an entrant like her and to make another entrant relax and enjoy in the future.
Secondly, I joined a tournament in Ibaraki on January.
Running tournaments are always supported by volunteers’ work.
And I met a lady who continued to being a volunteer of the tournament for 13 years.
I said that I came from Yokohama and I heard she had been Yokohama for 2 years.
I fell into conversation with her about Yokohama and Ibaraki, her families lived in Yokohama, and so on.
I could have an honest feeling because she talked to me honestly.
If I could encounter someone like them by chance from now on, joining a tournament is very meaningful for me.
