CyberConnect2 CEO ends Paris marathon at 22km

Hiroshi Matsuyama makes it through half the run.

Last week, the annual Paris Marathon saw a new runner: CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama.

Dressed like Naruto to promote Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, he ran 22 out of 42.195 kilometers. Or, you could say he ran a little over 35 miles.

A post on the CyberConnect2 blog today includes pictures of Matsuyama and local cosplayers, as well as photos of him trying to walk up the stairs after running the marathon.
