A couple of weeks ago I opened my local weekly paper and found this little cartoon. I can really relate to the cartoon, being such a slow runner. I'm pretty sure there were a couple of buzzards circling above me somewhere around mile 18 when I was completing the Las Vegas Marathon. Not only is it a really funny cartoon, but the artist happens to be my neighbor and I pass him frequently while I'm running and he's walking his dog. Leigh is a heck of a nice guy and a bit of a celebrity in our small town, being a published cartoonist and all. Stop by his website and check out his stuff- http://www.rubescartoons.com/

Funny cartoon! A buddy of mine raced a half marathon without training (he was humbled) and at one point, stopped beside a cow pasture, bent over to catch his breath, and a cow walked by him on the inside of the fence. He was passed by a cow! LOL

So, as slow a runner as you might think you are, you got him beat.

Have a good day.

As a fellow slow runner, I love it!
