Run, Jake, Run!

WAIKIKI (KHNL)- Tomorrow thousands of runners will hit the streets of Honolulu for the marathon, and among them will be Hawaii's hottest ukulele player, Jake Shimabukuro. He can easily entertain a crowd of thousands, but now he's about to do a performance of a different kind, as a runner! "I just turned 30 in November so I thought this would be a good way to put my 20's aside and run into my next decade," he explains.


"Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro, running his first marathon, finished with a respectable time of 5:24:27, rested for 20 minutes with fans, then went on stage to perform for marathon finishers."
