Marathoners Like Pain

Via the D.C. Sports Bog, I bring you a marathoner not paying attention. Be sure to watch the full video for the ultra-slo-mo at the end.

If the comments on the YouTube page where this lives are to be believed, the runner — "michaelscowden" — cracked two ribs but still finished the last 17 miles of the marathon.

As if running long distances didn't already hurt enough, now marathoners have to do things to increase the pain. Fucking masochists. Although this does explain why all the runners on my high school's cross-country team were cutters who listened to emo.
