Robot Marathon

So some little "robot runners" in Japan did a marathon. All 26.2 miles of it! It's damn impressive when humans do it but it's a little strange to watch these little guys. I can relate to the one that got kicked right at the start line. That tends to happen to us slow folks.

But it seems as though there is something slower than me in this world! The marathon took more than two days. At least my marathon time is typically under 7 hours!

"Organisers billed the race - which took more than two days - as a test of durability rather than speed." Source

That is exactly how I have always approached my races- a test of durability rather than speed. I think I'll stick with that.
