A boon from the soul of Japan19

Most people I saw running in Japan were very short, and their strides were also very short. They were very slow.

After I came back, the soul of Japan came to me and said she was so grateful that I had come to Japan. She said for that she would grant me a boon: “In this incarnation you will be able to run a marathon in under three hours.”

I laughed.
