    Before Saturday's Soldier Field 10, while waiting for my corral to start, I looked over and saw this sign:

    HAVE YOU POOPED YET?

    It reminded me of several other signs I have seen on the sidelines, such as

    THIS SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA 3 MONTHS AGO

     

    RUN AS IF YOU'RE BEING CHASED BY CLOWNS

     

    SMILE IF YOU'RE NOT WEARING UNDERWEAR

     

    RUN? I THOUGHT YOU SAID RUM.

                          I saw "Chuck Norris never ran a marathon." during the 2012 Twin Cities Marathon. I smiled, which prompted the holder of the sign to yell, "Do it for Chuck!"

                            It wasn't a sign, but a spectator said this at the the top of a down hill we were about to run down. It was an out and back course so we had to run up the hill at the end of the race:

                             

                            "We're going to start digging, so when you get back it will be down hill for you!"

                             

                            maybe you had to be there....

                              "Shoe sale ahead"

                              "Run like you stole something"

                              'No matter how slow you go, you're still lapping everyone on the couch'

                               

                              "Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"  - Peter Maher

                               

                              "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis

                                The other day I saw, "Hey John, why are all those girls looking at your ass?".
