2006 Marine Corps Marathon

If you are one of those fools who like to run 26.2 miles at a stretch, where feet blister, backs ache, and even men put Band-Aids on their nipples so they don’t bleed, then this is the time to rejoice.

Registration for the 2006 Marine Corps Marathon begins today!

If you want to be one of the first 1,000 idiots runners to register, then head over to Pentagon Row today and join DC101 in a early registration runner’s orgy from 11:00-13:00.

If you enjoy the convenience of online registration, you can register here starting tomorrow at noon. Better hurry though, last year the registration closed in less than three days – so commit by Friday or watch from the sidelines yet another year.

The sidelines are where I’ll be, that’s for sure. 26.2 miles is way too far to run. After 10K, I’m taking a taxi. Us Olympic triathletes are like that.

    Not this time–after Houston in January, I think I’ve done enough damage to my body.

    Be a man – run the marathon. 10K is a mere warm-up.

    I’ll check my manhood after you do an Olympic triathlon. That would be a 1,500 meter/1 mile swim, 40 kilometer/25 mile bike, and then a 10 kilometer/6 mile run.

    Oh and all that at speed, say 2:30 or less.
