Before you laugh and make jokes about this marathon runner going the wrong way  just remember this is in Japan.   I mean I’ll be the first to admit I’m a little cloudy on the distinctions between Chinese, Japanese, Thai, etc etc.  but I’m pretty sure you throw on a ceremonial robe and fall on a samurai sword for something like this.   Like this ain’t America where you get a sweet runner up trophy and a viral video and a cute interview on Good Morning America for your little gaffe.  This is fucking Japan where it’s Seppuku all day every day for the dishonor of a wrong turn at mile 25.99.
