Every once-in-a-while we get some funny running news. Today is one of those days. Since I'm trying to cram 100 hours of dissertation work into 4 today, I havent done any internet surfing (straight to blogging, I swear). But I did check my email and got something great from my hubby, who has a habit of sending me random online news clips.
Imagine running a marathon, and finally having that finish line in sight. Thank goodness! After miles and miles you see it! You are almost there! But then, a train comes and blocks you from reaching that finish line. Thats what happened at the Des Moines Marathon. Seriously. The leader (by 10 seconds) had to wait a minute until the train passed, and the finish ended up as a 400 meter sprint.
Guess thats what you get for running in Iowa.
