Ever tried running for a minute at over 20 km/hr? These people do it for over two hours. Incredible really.

Congratulations to winner Kiyoto Hirabayashi.

Hats off to Kokugakuin University senior student Kiyoto Hirabayashi. His time is amazing - and I believe will stand him a good chance of making the Olympics.

Can Hirabayashi feature on the podium in Paris? Let's wait and see!

If you look closely, you can see me 7th from front center, 2 to the right. In the white.

I finished 3 and a half minutes behind Hirabayashi, but admittedly I was hungover (still drunk) and on 3 hours sleep.

Pretty good for my 1st marathon

See the photo!

Wow, that is so crowded! It's like a Japanese rush-hour train.

I don't think I would want to run a marathon after seeing this. (But then again, I wasn't planning on running it anyway...)
