Do Gym-Goers Take the Cake?

I’m not sure what this video says about people at the gym, or people in the street, or the guys who put together the video, but I suppose it’s a slice of life.

If it’s me, I’m taking the pastry. Alas, no cannoli.

Babalu!

Few races can combine comedy and running like the Lucy Town Half Marathon & 5K. Held in Jamestown, New York, the hometown of Lucille Ball and the location of the Lucy Desi Center for Comedy, the event weekend includes a performance by legendary comedian Bob Newhart and an attempt to break the grape-stomping world record.

It all takes place the weekend of October 11-12. Go from the finish line to the conga line!

Dirty Girl Mud Run Too Dirty For Some

This was the top story on the local news in Milwaukee, beating out the arrest of a shooting suspect.

As far as mud runs go, it could have been much, much worse.

Run for the Cannoli

Running Is Funny has been proud to feature donuts, beignets and malasadas on these pages, but today we have a first in the pastry race category.

A small 5k in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, goes through the heart of the Italian neighborhood in the city, and is dubbed the Run for the Cannoli. Even better, each finisher receives a cannolo (singular). To illustrate, here are cannoli inside a cannolo.

This video is a high-quality promo for the race, but inexplicably has no footage of cannoli! Per carità!

80s Race Reminds Me How Damn Old I Am

Last year I had a great time running the Rock the ’80s 8-miler. The finishers’ medals were particularly cool.

This year it looks like the Lovely Mrs. A. and I will team up and do the 8-mile relay. Once again, the medal is cool, but I suddenly realized there may be some runners too young to know what the heck it is.

I guess it could be worse. Try explaining to your kids what this is…
