    Do you see it now?

    God, that was painfully complicated. I hate computers! I feel like I could use that guy right about now...

      I admit nothing

        I thought this was going to be a thread about runners who can't control their bodily functions.

          I was expecting a photo like the one of "ridiculously photogenic guy" from the Cooper River Bridge Run--this was way better!!  Thanks for the legitimate LOL!!

            That picture looks photoshopped to me.

             

            The runner getting "smacked" doesn't look like she's really on the road surface and if she kept running without getting smacked she'd run right into Nutter's hand (that's Philly Mayor Mike Nutter in the jeans).

             

            It just doesn't look real.

            "C" is for cookie.  That's good enough for me.

                        I have way too much time on my hands, clearly, but since I can sort of read his bib, a quick search of 40ish year old finishers named Eric yielded this:

                        It is most definitely real.

                         

                        And it's pretty amusing watching it happen over a series of photographs.

                            Weird.  When I click it, it takes me to the photos.  Perhaps because I searched them once.

                             

                            Anywho, maybe try here, pick Philly Marathon and bib 5971.  I got that link from Google, so I hope it links properly this time.

                              We should save our next meldown for Monday. I can't see too many people getting bent out of shape over the weekend.

                               

                              I'm wondering if the woman is the guy's wife since they may be wearing matching shirts.
