50-YEAR-LONG MARATHON

Schizo Kanakuri, a Japanese marathon runner, on the thirtieth kilometer felt thirsty. He ran near a house and asked the owner to give him some water. Swedish peasant led the runner to the room and went to kitchen to get some juice. When he came back, he saw the guest sleeping. Thus, Kanakuri slept over a day. After fifty years, he came back to the same Swedish village, where his marathon unexpectedly ended, and ran the rest of the distance from there. He was over 70 years old when he finished his marathon.
