The fall marathon season. A wonderful time of year, except that here in the frosty, or soon to be frosty, north, snow will be falling and Santa will be callin on the good little boys and girls.
With marathon season upon us, assuming I have never run a marathon, but happened to be an "unofficial runner" at a local marathon and I started at the start and crossed the finish line with the "official runners" - can I say I have run a marathon? Can I say I completed a marathon? Asuming that is the only marathon I have "done."
Your input would be welcomed.
