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.
