I’ve completed one half marathon in my life. I’m not going to say that I ran it, but I definitely completed it. I was spent by the end. In fact, about 20 seconds after I got my medal, I dropped to my knees at the nearest bush and puked my guts out. Maybe that’s because I didn’t have Tomatan with me.
In Japan, it is not uncommon for runners to eat tomatoes as a way to keep their strength up during a race. So, with Japan being… Japan, they have come up with what we can only call the most unique tomato delivery system we’ve ever seen.
His name is Tomatan. He’s a robot who sits on your shoulders and jams tomatoes into your mouth on command.
