The Marathon1

Previously during the New York City Marathon, I saw Kanan running — of course, according to Hashi's speed. But this time Hashi was not there. Kanan was running alone, but he finished, I hope.

How many times I asked about some of the slower runners — at thirteen miles, at nineteen miles and at other places. I waited for them for a long time. I did not see them at all. But they finished — very good! Again, some were even slower. There will always be someone to smash our pride!

How I wish that in this lifetime I could complete another marathon! I walk fifty metres this way and fifty metres that way — that is enough for me.
