2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth

01-10

Ninjas like running 5ks.Today was the famous Iki Marathon.  There’s a 5k, 10k, and half-marathon, as well as a number of random smaller races for the elementary-, middle-, and high school students on the island.  I woke up a mere four hours after going to sleep to support my friend Guy as he ran the 10k, and to see my students.  It was surprisingly fun, though I think a lot of it was seeing so many people I know in one place.  And also getting out of my house.

There were a few characters there, but the most gimmicky was this ninja here.  (He’s running the 5k.)  He had a fake katana and shuriken even.  Awesome-tastic.

  1. LOL.

    Also that lady on the left in the pink looks like she’s already about to collapse from exhaustion.

    I like looking at pictures of people–it’s always interesting to look at everyone’s facial expressions.

      Yeah, the best part about the lady in pink is that this is, honestly, about 20 seconds after the race began. But I think she made it.
