Jesus Runs In New York Marathon
Well, it certainly looked like him.
According to the New York City Marathon website, his bib number — 55-970, affixed, naturally, to the cross — belongs to Makoto Takeuchi, from Chiba, Japan. (It appears Takeuchi is a New York-based photographer; an email sent to the address listed on his website was not immediately returned.)
No word yet on the Son of God’s finishing time, though he did reportedly have a little trouble running with the extra load.
