Let's (not) Marathon

While a walk in the park is harmless enough,

Shonan Marathon 2011
and can even be fun,
10 K finishers
the reasons not to run a full marathon are legion...
Finishers in pain
Worse, these are the good (sub-3hr) guys,
salty exhaustion
natural runners,
gasping his last
who should have been having fun...
Collapsing at the finish
finished finisher
There was a shuttle bus back to the station which followed the course, from where we saw the carnage of the 4 hour-plussers... stumbling zombies, bodies piled by the roadside, wheelchairs, ambulances etc. But here's jules, happy to have beaten 1500 (wow) men! And I had a cold.
