A certain Japanese comedian named ‘Kanpei Hazama’ has been challenging “The Earth Marathon” for 205 days now! That means he acrossed the pacific ocean by sailboat with his friend who has enough expertise about it and stepped on the US land and today he finally could have run across the north American continent BY only HIS TWO LEGS!!!!
He is a famous comedian particularly in Osaka area. Definitely, I’d been raised with his stupid gags. I believe that almost all the Osakaites love him. Actually, I feel as if he was one of my relatives or neighbors. He gives power, energy, and never- give-up spirit to me and all of his fans in Japan.
He will continue his marathon and he’s supposed to depart from New York to Paris next week, of course by sailboat.
Good Luck ! and Hanging there, Kanpei-chan!!! “KANPEI EARTH MARATHON Supporters Club” in English
