Quote Of The Day
“Boldly saying that he wanted ‘to go where nobody has gone before,’ with his 2:09:15 second place finish at the Dec. 15 Hofu Yomiuri Marathon independent Yuki Kawauchi completed his eleventh marathon of the year, an historic accomplishment in more ways than one. Two of his marathons were sub-2:09, four sub-2:10, six sub-2:12, one a national all-comers’ record, two PBs, four course records, five wins and eight top-three finishes. All while faced with an endless chorus of people telling him that it’s such a fine line between brilliant and stupid, that he can’t keep getting away with this kind of craziness.”
