Early departure. For the beginning my drink bottle got leakage. I had to check several times and finally found the lubber cap was not fit.

Arrived at Samukawa Shrine in 2 hours 21 minutes.
Due to the against wind, the duration was probably slowest ever.

I use a new knee brace. It works very well so far.

Turning to the south and I got the straight against wind.

I reached to the beach and turns to the east. Hope the wind changes.

After changed the direction the wind helped me to run.

A little slower than usual.

Breakfast at my favorite cafe.

I wanted to have this pancake.

The way back was easy with the strong follow wind.

Stopping by a bakery to buy lunch.

I went home and left again for shopping.
