    “I’m motivated by that ‘Not-seeing-my-family-high’ that many runners get after logging in a few miles on the pavement. It makes all the leg cramps, eroded cartilage, third-degree sunburn, pants crapping, and the intense stabbing pain that jets up through my spine every time I begin to move my feet all worth it.”

      Logging a few miles on the pavement?  Oh dear.

       

      Must have been training for badwater or comrades.

          Someone texted me the headline a few minutes before Bob posted it here.  I suspect it is making the facebook or twitter rounds.

                   The comments are hilarious.

                    my favorite:

                     

                     

                    Why did you get married? you are a selfish basterd you are not an athleic you have no morals you are a pig making your body strong without a brain or feeling it means nothing they should kick you out of the sport you moran.

                     


                    You are a narssictic Ass,you belong to be treated as a criminal of law you do not deserve your family.

                     

                     

                    it's even better with a picture:

                        Well, the comments are funny... but a few are so over-the-top (aka, "wait, you couldn't tell it was a joke?") that one wonders if the comments themselves are jokes.  Very dry jokes.  Like the comments you will find on certain products listed on amazon.  "This chartreuse blouse CHANGED MY LIFE."

                         

                        Anyway.
