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.
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!
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.
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!
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…
