See, this is why I have conversations like this with my mom:
Mom: Oh, Mr. Jablonski down the street runs marathons too.
Me: Really? I didn't know he ran.
Mom: He and his daughter ran it as a father-daughter thing.
Me: Isn't his daughter 8yo?
Mom: I think they were being chased by zombies, or something.

...papers posting articles like: "9 of Philly's strangest marathons" and then only actually listing one marathon are why people ask us "how far was your marathon?"
Marathon number 5 is only 50 yards. I could probably run that one twice in one day.

No, no, no, you don't understand! The writer states clearly that these are in contrast to "traditional marathons". This is America! We break traditions! The marathon can be any damn distance we like!
Watch out, tomorrow I'm gonna run my 10K ultra in way less than an hour!
Well, considering that many of the 'marathons' are untimed and loosely structured, I guess you could just circle around the course in heels, flashing lights and underwear, getting pelted with cornstarch and mud and dodging zombies until you hit 26.2.
Woah. Now tell me you would not respect the person that finished *that* race.
Oh wait... I forgot the cyclists. Boo hoo
I'd end up making Kevin Ware's injury look like a papercut if I tried to run in heels.

Every time I come back to the office after a marathon, I get asked that question: how far was this marathon? Ahem, same as the last one!

And, marathon number 7 is a bike race. LOL! I liked the first comment to the article. AmberX is all over this.
Run the mile you are in.
And actually they listed the marathon event wrong. It's the Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon... Unless the event is being changed to include a marathon this year as well, but it doesn't seem so, looking at the website real quickly... So no actual marathons were listed in the "article"!!
Scully would have rocked that high heels run - she was always dashing around in her heels!
I am perplexed - the Color Run and the Color Me Bad Run are two different things?
Hah, they've changed it to "9 of Philly's strangest races" - the m-word has vanished.
Ilana is awesome. She lives in a cool place, drinks good beer, and runs hard. She should start a fucking lifestyle blog for chicks. - NC Runner

Did you see! Now there's like this night time race. The Electric Race is what I think it's called. So there's Zombie races, Light Races, Color Runs, Obstacle Races (I actually like the Tough Mudder), and mud runs. Did I miss any? Oh yeah. There's regular races where you just run from the start to the finish.
I write and stuff
Dad on the run.
People still do that????
My parents said I could be anything when I grew up, so I decided to be Awesome!
People still do that????
WHY ARE YOU ALL MARCHING ON ME AT DAWN!?
