Okinawa Marathon 2009

Today I watched the marathon. I checked the map to see if they would be running past our housing area. They were we waited around till they made it to our neck of the woods and went to see if I could spot someone I knew.
Something interesting about Okinawa they have them run in one lane and the lane next to them is open for traffic. It is the strangest thing.
ALSO I was standing outside of Post by the gate and they were actually stopping the runners to let people in and out of the gate. It was insane.
These are a few pics of the colorful characters out running today. I will get on tomorrow and post the rest plus the crazy traffic stops.

I can promise you that if i eer run a marathon. I won't wear a crazy outfit. Though the cow guy had a bell and maybe the ringing helped pace him.
