>General Running>Funny signs you have seen during a race
2016 Pre-race photo
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....

"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?".
