S2 Ep10. マラソン大会


Hello, this is episode 10 of season 2 of my podcast. I recently received an invitation to be an ambassador for Anchor as my podcast has recently reached a certain number of plays, and I’ve also gained a lot of followers on Spotify, so I’d like to thank you all for listening to my podcast and for your support. Last week I wrote a new article. I wrote about the culture of Japanese clinics. It is uploaded on my website. If you are planning to visit Japan, please check it out.


Today was the day of the Osaka Marathon. The road near my house was the course of the marathon, so there were many security guards. Half of the people running the marathon were women. I found out that about 24% of the participants were women. Also, the number of foreign participants seems to be increasing. This year is the ninth marathon, and compared to the first one, the number of foreign participants has increased by about ten times. The largest number of foreigners are from Hong Kong. Hong Kong is the host of the Hong Kong International Marathon. Around 70,000 people take part in this event. Maybe that is why there are so many marathon runners in Hong Kong.


I have been feeling a bit down recently because I have been unwell. But I discovered something good. Yesterday afternoon, I went to the hairdresser for the first time in a long time. There I noticed that the shampoo smelled very nice. I wondered why, so just before I left, I bought some hair oil with the same scent at the hairdresser’s. This oil is organic and contains many herbs. When I smelled it, I felt very calm. On the internet I found out that aromatherapy has not only psychological but also medical benefits.


If you are feeling down, give it a try. Well, I think that’s it for today. See you next time and thanks for listening!
