Happy Friday! I hop e this has been a good week for you. In October 2002 I ran my first marathon. Last Saturday I ran my last, at least I am pretty sure it was my last. 26.2 miles is more than I ever thought I would run or ever wanted to run, but I enjoyed it more than I imagined I would. But, alas, age just might be catching up with me a little bit and the training just ain’t no fun no more, so I say this is it for long distance running. So let’s kick off the weekend with a little marathon humor.
Training for a marathon is hard work, but it will be good for you in the long run.
Word of advice: do not mess with a marathoner – they run the streets.
I have had a habit of using the same puns every marathon, it is kind of a running joke.
Now that I have run marathons, my work signed me up for a 401K.
I have run my last marathon, but now I am going to treat every day like I will be running a marathon tomorrow. I am going to rest a lot and really load up on carbs!
I injured myself during an Ironman marathon the other day. Guess I got up off the couch too fast during the third film.
I heard they were trying to organize an oompah loompay marathon; however, contestants are running short.
Did you hear about the marathon runner who was sprinting at the start of the race? Apparently his pacemaker was malfunctioning.
Did you hear about that guy who planned to ran a marathon on railroad tracks? He trained a lot, but got distracted.
Did you hear that Paul McCartney has been disqualified from London Marathon? Seems he was banned on the run.
One thing you can say about Charity Marathons, they give you a run for your money.
A friend told me that he and his girlfriend broke up after they ran a marathon together. He was pretty heartbroken, but said they had a good run.
