This month, we participated in a virtual run in celebration of taiko.
Etsy artist Taiko-kun specializes in taiko-themed items. She organized the run for October 10 or 10/10/2015. In taiko, the sounds "ten-ten" are commonly used to describe the sound of beats on a shime or tied-rope drum. The run organizer designated October 10 as "Taiko Day" and the run was called the Taiko Day Ten-Ten Run.
A virtual run means you register, get your race bib and run on your own time.
Three Nen Daiko members decided to take up the challenge - Dee Miyasato, Emily Ihara and Carla Brown. We call ourselves Run D-Em-C!
It was a great addition to our regular conditioning routine, but mostly, we wanted to own that adorable taiko medal!
Also, part of the proceeds will also be donated to the National Endowment for the Arts in support of arts and art education in America.
