Have you ever run a Marathon ?

Have you ever run a Marathon ?

  •  

    in sandals or flipflops ? 

    the world record was just set 2:46:58

  •  

    Sure did, it was my first marriage, it lasted 14 years, thought it would never end... All those stories about bleeding and picking are so true! :)

  •  

    no marathon, but i run the Army Ten-Miler every year.  it's coming up this weekend, and let me tell you, it's a lot harder to prepare when you have a little one around!

    however, i can't even begin to imagine doing it in flip flops.  however there are a few military men who will run in full uniform (with their packs and belts) including boots.  that's an amazing feat.

    Have never done it in any shoes and never will. I just do not see the point!

    I second your sentiments Rick

    I have run a couple of Mudathlons/Warrior Dash. Really don't like running, very boring.

  •  

    Knees wouldnt allow that, maybe a halfer!

  •  

    i love to run.  it's a good 30-40 minutes where no one can bother me and no one can reach me.  prefect time to just be alone and let your mind think about whatever.

    and i have to admit, my competitive side likes it when i go out and do something most people can't/won't do.

    The race was run early in the morning. So drinking 26 beers over a 12 hour was not that hard. I finished pretty early in the evening so I had a vodka on the rocks for a night cap. Seemed fair to me.
