How to Avoid Killing Yourself at the Start Of Marathon

Posted: January 15, 2008 in Running Humour

The number one mistake novice runners make at the start of a marathon is starting like a pro runner.

Before the start of a marathon all runners are equal but immediately the starting gun is fired we all fall into runners hierarchy. The pro infront, followed by the fit runners and lastly the unfit runners.

According to a police spokesman the friend initially did not realize anything was wrong. Read the rest of the crazy story

Neither man was trained as a stunt man. I wonder, were this  crazy dudes trying to make a video to post on You Tube? and has anyone out there seen the video on You tube?
