    "Just the running part, that was really hard for me today," Tanaka said. "I actually didn't know I was going to run this much," Tanaka said through a translator.

"Line, line!," the man shouted whenever one of the professional gawkers, generally a Japanese TV cameraperson, inadvertently ventured into the forbidden territory.
