Tendai Marathon Monks

When I first heard of the Tendai Monks and their 1000 days of running I was in awe. The distances are insane and the conditions brutal. It sort of makes this streak look meaningless.

But then I realized they do their 1000 days over 7 years - yeah thats no streak.
I'll give them credit for 40Km everyday for 6 months though.

Ok I am kidding - this is nothing short of amazing and explains why only 46 people have accomplished this since the 1800s. Read about it here

Amazing! Kyoto is on my list of places to visit and this only makes me want to see it more, especially if it were possible to see these marathon monks during one of their runs...
