Weekly Poll
Have you ever or will you ever run a marathon?

I have and it’s a wonderful challenge for body and mind.
I really want to, but it’s a tad intimidating.
Are you out of your freaking mind? Why would anyone do such a thing?
The only marathons I like require Netflix and result in bed sores.
