Top 10 Signs Seen At The 2012 Chicago Marathon

OK – I know I’m a bit behind in these entries. I’ll have entries for my September (Self-Inflicted Yet Again) Marathon, the Fifth Avenue Mile, the WDW Tower of Terror 10 miler and the Chicago Marathon posted this week. However: I needed to share this before I completely forget!

The Top 10 Signs Seen During The 2012 Chicago Marathon:

10. “Hey complete stranger – we’re proud of you!”

9. “The Kenyans went that way.”

8. “26.2….because 26.3 would be crazy.”

7. “17 miles to beer.”

6. “pain is temporary – pride is…..oh you know the rest.”

5. “You’re chaffing. I’m cheering. Suckers!”

4. “Release your inner Kenyan.”

3. “Masochist: someone who gets pleasure out of pain.”

2. “Worst. Parade. EVER.”

And my personal favorite:

1. “Do Epic Shit.”

  1. I believe my favorite was “If this were easy, it’d be called YOUR MOM.” Definitely adds a hint of mean-spiritedness but if I were running past it, I’d definitely laugh.

    1. Thanks for the comment Krissy! That one is always fun to see…but I cannot wait for NYC! The signs here are HYSTERICAL!!

  2. My favourite sign at the Brighton Marathon was “Fags and Booze In 5 Minutes” – when we got there there was a massive party of spectators with booze but also jelly babies for the non-drinkers.
    I love the Garmin sign 🙂

    1. Thanks for the comment! What’s a jelly baby? (since it’s non-alcoholic, my knowledge base is lacking…) LOL

      1. Its a kind of UK candy, a bit like gummy bears but softer. They are really good for fuelling during long distance runs and much cheaper than energy gels!

        You can also make a drink by leaving a packet of them in a bottle of vodka for a few days 😉

  3. Nice 🙂 A friend doing Ironman WA yesterday and her husband put ‘Move you Lazy Log Alicia!’ 🙂 I love the signs and quotes! My little boy is 1 and we chalked the pavement for Daddy’s race yesterday – ‘Sorry I ate all your bananas Daddy!’. Nice site, I’ll be dropping by for the odd read 🙂 Faye
