(Less) Fat Man finishes the Boston Marathon!


A couple of weeks ago, we told you about the fat guy who was running the Boston Marathon for charity. We had his chances of finishing the thing about the same as the Royals winning the World Series. Well, guess what? He did. In 9 hours and 40 minutes.


Boston Marathon… check.

I’m pretty sure that by the time I finished, the Kenyans were already back in Africa celebrating.

I’d also like to congratulate the 122-year old guy who passed me around mile 13. I have no idea if he finished but as he passed me — he took with him any and all self-resecpt that I may have ha

Well done, Jacob. The guy lost 100 pounds and ran the Boston Marathon. Hell, it’s quite a feat even if he walked for most of it. It doesn’t look like anyone actually ponied up for his auction for charity on ebay. But he did something most of us wouldn’t even attempt. And most of us didn’t look like this.
