While a ‘move to trash’-marked in red blinking icon ornates my dashboard, I try to get some inspiring breath to convince you of:
1. Wherever you had a terrible experience with a sub-standards organised marathon, it can be worsened.
2. No matter how deep those bunch of bastards got you through a forgettable experience; there is always another insane ready to make them appear as the bloody NYRRC.
3. No. It is not sane to book a flight to a non-existing organization to run a so-called ‘world’s worst marathon’ event. God knows what can I find there.
Anyway, I shall keep on editing this nonsense of post. It can always be a helpful lesson to English students or vacant runners. What is your worst experience on marathon running? Wait-I-mean-worse-than-that-one-crappy-race-organised-by-four-drunk-joggers. Well… provided that, I …
I am proud to announce that next 21st November, the infamous LPMM (in Spanish, La Peor Maratón del Mundo) will be run on its second edition along a 42km-ish road nasty course. Traffic free (we run the pavements) but also charmless and public free; No fixed aid-stations but stops on local bars and more surprises to come. On the 1st edition, this very pristine pile of useless running attracted an unexpected field of 3 (no one was expected). Indeed, one of the three got to us with some warm drinks at k12 and then finished the jog to a glorious bronze medal.
Exceptionally, we will make road course public. Please stick your eyes to your laptop screen. Bring your own supporters. Volunteers needed.
