    OMG that is just sad, sad, sad. However, the guy`s name that ran off the path will always be remembered. The guy that won will fall into the "yeah, one of the winners" catagory

    I would be so pissed off at the organisers that I would melt. Technicaly he ran an extra 20 yards but that won`t really help him.

    This also could have happened.



    I also couldn`t imagine being smothered by a blanket/hugs like that after a marathon. Give the guys some space, man!

    Wasn`t just the truck, it was that damn idiot in the white jacket standing RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of the path! Poor guy, this is a typical management fail and they aren`t taking any heat for it.

    premierwondr: YES! It`s a huge problem with marathon runners. Women are usually fine because of tight sports bras, but dudes have a problem because of the friction between nip and the looser shirt.

    Maybe he just got hypnotized by keeping pace with the back end of the camera vehicle, and when it turned he didn`t realize it.

    "premierwondr: YES! It`s a huge problem with marathon runners. Women are usually fine because of tight sports bras, but dudes have a problem because of the friction between nip and the looser shirt. "

    Why don`t they just either 1. put some tape over their naps, 2. put petroleum jelly on their nips or something. I feel like either of those are probably simple solutions.

    TKD_Master: Most experienced runners that are prone to nip bleedage, tape `em up. But I think a lot of guys just don`t expect that to happen, or they have never ran such a long race before.

    That just makes me sad. they run for that long and at the end, have the option of going the wrong way? I ran x-country in high school to improve my cardio for hockey and I hated every second of it...running sucks...
