Thanks for this great website. My husband and I started running about 1.5 years ago in the U.S. and enjoy the sport. We came to Sapporo in March and will be here for 1 year.I was wondering if you had any idea about where we could find bigger sized running shoes. My husband wears an American size 13, and I wear an American size 9.5. Also, do you know where we could find Cliff blocks?

Clint said...

There is a shop in Sapporo that would probably have them. The athlete club.

Or you could try ordering online.
Many shops will also special order if you know what you want. And if you don't want them when they come in, you don't have to buy them.

As for Cliff blocks, I wouldn't know about that. I started running in Japan and have never used anything like that. I received a sample of something that looks similar. I'll have to get that out and see what the product name is.

You could always experiment with alternatives. Gummy bears? Jelly beans? Candies? Single serving honey packets? Salty candies and chewables are available at outdoor and sporting shops for hikers etc.

If it is for the caffeine, I've read that the caffeine only really helps if you don't regularly take caffeine. If you never drink coffee or tea etc...

The only thing I've ever used are things for energy. Sports drinks, home mixed sports drinks, honey, bread, food of all sorts.

Good luck and have fun!

I found that product I wrote about. It's called "origono-ru gumi", オリゴノールグミ in katakana. It says "3 hours Power Source". Looks like it is made out of sugar, gelatin, lemon juice, lychee, tea extract and a few other things I can't recognize. It also has something in it called l-citrulline, which I looked up. It apparently may help reduce muscle fatigue.

Limited information is included in the calendar entries. For more information, leave a comment. I try to post the deadlines for the races. The place where the race is held is also included. You can see where it is by clicking on the map link.
