Bad, Finish Line, and Love: slightly-bovverd
 If you ever feel bad about taking a longer time than
 someone else to accomplish the same things, just
 remember that during the 1912 Stockholm Olympics
 Japanese marathon runner Shizo Kanakuri passed
 out in a garden party along the marathon route and,
 instead of notifying race officials of his inability to
 finish the race, he went back to Japan without telling
 anyone and was considered a missing person by the
 Swedish authorities for 50 years.
 He didn't finish the race until 1967 when a Swedish
 television station offered to help him complete the
 run, and he finished with a final time of 54 years, 8
 months, 6 days, 5 hours, 32 minutes and 20.379
 seconds.

 This post needs the picture of the man finally
 crossing the finish line.
 I love how happy he is.
