Every year there is a big marathon in Austin. It comes right through our neighborhood and usually we get to see people run by. It's all I need to do each year to convince myself that running is a really stupid sport and I will never try it. The looks on the people's faces says it all - they all look like they're being tortured. To me, running is like a cold shower - we think it's good for us because it feels good when we stop.

I came out of the house early in the morning, and heard cheering and stomping. I looked up the road...

...and saw the runners going by.

There sure are a lot of them.

He's got legs....and he knows how to use them! (get it?)

Oh yeah, running looks so fun!

It's a bird, it's a plane...

Nope, it's a guy with what looks to be a huge penis running a marathon in a superman costume. (Superman never wore gloves, and had a smaller winkie.)

Smiles all around.

Apparently the runner's high hasn't kicked in yet.

That's it, I went back to the house and crawled back into bed.
