What Do You Say to a Marathon Runner

A friend of mine was staying at my house one time as I was getting ready to head out for a marathon weekend.  "What do you say to someone about to run a marathon?" he asked me.


You know, if it's an actor, you say, "Break a leg.  What do you say to a marathon runner?"

"I don't know.  Go f*ck youself?"

It was good for a laugh at the time.  But later that day as I left for the airport, his last words yelled as I walked out the door were, of course:

Groundhog Day Marathon

Yesterday Ken Lusk and I went out and measured the Groundhog Day Marathon course.  It's BEAUTIFUL.  Even in the winter it will be great, but we're thinking that we need to run something out there before that, just to let people enjoy the beauty.  Cool course, just under 4.4 miles long--six laps to a marathon.  Would make a great marathon relay course.

People Die During Marathons!

Sometimes people die during marathons. Then the headlines are all over it, and people are saying "I'm not going to run a marathon, people die doing that." Try Googling "Do people ever die during sex?" and see what you learn. Yeah. I'm not going to quit doing that either.
