Track and Field RIP
by: LetsRun.com
April 1, 2008

Track and Field died yesterday from complications of neglect. His best friend Roger Bannister was just a mile away when it happened. Bannister was there in less than four minutes but it was too late! No fans were available to resuscitate him. 

Demise had long been predicted. Only showing a pulse every four years, his endurance had been a problem from the start. Long suspected of being on drugs, it was obvious that time was running out. When the end drew near a shot put him out of misery.  

In the early years he had traveled in the best circles, but lately he would only stop, watch and recall those times. At the wake, many commented that he was a good sport even when getting the run around. Javelin appeared to be the most upset, unable to get a grip on the sudden loss. 

Media coverage was sparse. Newspapers failed to relay the information when they couldn't find a photo of the finish. Television tape-delayed the funeral. 

Track and field is survived by generations of road races, and a distant relative - the marathon.  

The family asks that In lieu of laurel wreaths, donations be made to letsrun.com.
