True Blood

without comments


The NYC marathon is this Sunday. Like most casual observers, I get the effort it takes to run a marathon, and even more, to finish one. I’ve heard of marathoners who vomit, pee and occasionally poop themselves–while running. But this…this is something else. It looks like a case of stigmata gone horribly wrong. Even worse, it’s apparently not uncommon. How come televised coverage never includes this insane example of endurance? I just know that if it happened to me, I’d stop running and start screaming. “Somebody HELP ME! For the love of god, my nipples are BLEEDING!!” Much respect, marathoners.
