  1. I currently live in Japan, and and there’s a 100K ultra marathon by my apartment ever summer. This past summer had one man dressed in Kimono wearing gaeta (traditional shoes made from a slab of wood and with 2 wooden prongs at the bottom to hold the walker 2 inches out of mud, etc. And strapped to his feet with only a thong between his toes.)
