Running a marathon is something I have no plans to ever try.
Running from point A to point B over a distance of 26.6 miles sounds like the opposite of fun to me, but clearly it is fun times for over 25,000 other people.
Let me tell you - I was once at the starting area for the Marine Corps marathon down in DC, and I saw people pissing just out in the open. Women, men, everyone - just pulling their running shorts to the side and peeing on the grass.
And who can ever forget Uta Pippig running along with poop and blood running down her leg back in 1996. Ew.
This is not a sport for normal people.
But for those running the Boston Marathon today, I hope you all make times that make you happy.
