Resilience II – Spartan Sprint 2017

After Tokyo Marathon, it’s time to take on a new challenge and this time raise ¥400,000 for Resilience.
On May 27th, the first Spartan Sprint ever will be held in Tokyo. Whilst the 7km run is no problem for me, I’ve never done any strength training in my life! With no regular access to a gym, I’ll be working with my bodyweight and seeing what monkey bars I can find around my house.

The obstacles in the race look terrifying to me but nothing like the real threats that women go through every day in Japan when they are in an abusive relationship. Survivor stories show the extreme mental and physical suffering that people need to endure.

By raising awareness and funds, I hope to help Resilience NPO continue their valuable work in supporting survivors in Japan.

  1. Hi Jen,

    Good for you! I’m sure you know you can use canned goods as weights, but I’m not sure where you’d be able to do chin ups!
