Shimahara's comments:
I'm relieved to be able to say that everything went smoothly with the delivery.  These days there are a lot of marathoners who still race after having given birth.  I don't have any definite plans yet, but after talking things over with my family and keeping an eye on my physical condition I hope to make a comeback at some point.  I hope you will all keep supporting me and cheer for me whenever that day comes.
