Merely the mention of a marathon — unless the sentence also involves the words drinking and session — is more than enough to make me weak at the knees, so for those who actually do them, I have nothing but the utmost respect. And especially so, like in today’s Tokyo Marathon, when they tackle the challenge with incredible good humour.
Not to mention equally incredible costumes.
For some on the sidelines, however, simply watching was way too much.
Whereas for others, not only competing, but also completing the course, can become a huge cross to bear.
