|Author: ||5k Marathon!|
|Subject: ||odd new form of lying that is more and more prevalent..|
Marathon in my hometown today.
I have seen at least 6 or 7 posts on Facebook from different friends and/or their spouses patting themselves on their backs for running the marathon today. When I look up their times, none have run the marathon. They have run the half, or the relay, or the 10k.
It used to be that the hobbled, hobby joggers congratulating each other actually "ran" a marathon in 5 hours or whatever. Now, apparently any distance that causes mild discomfort to a couch potato is a marathon.
