The obsession is real – Guy is running ‘Star Wars’ shaped routes all over Portland

Going to a movie theater, sitting down, eating some popcorn, and watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens just isn’t good enough for many fans to show their appreciation for The Force.

Portland runner Gene Lu used his legs to display his love for all things Star Wars…he ran, a lot. I don’t know how far (miles) he plans on taking his obsession, but at this point he has re-created a Stormtrooper, TIE Fighter, Darth Vader and an At-At Walker.
