    Default Chicago Marathon Cancelled

    It was 88 degrees in Chicago today, so the officials decided to stop the race after 3.5 hours. One runner died, and 302 runners were sickened:

    My friend who was in it stopped after mile 17 and has been puking most of the day. Chicago is so proud of the marathon. 40,000 people run it, and a million people cheer them on. It's really sad.

    That's what happens when people are obese.

    What's really sad, is that they knew this would happen and did not postpone it. Anyone close to running knows you can't run this race in 88F without significant risk.

    Because there are droves of obese people that run marathons.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Our high school wrestling coach had trained for this since spring. It was going to be his first ever marathon. I hope he's ok.

    I was thinking the same thing, but didn't see much reason in trying to argue about it...

    I lost all respect for him, now that I found out he coaches girls golf.
