This is one of the strangest things I saw at the Chicago Marathon. A smoking marathon runner. Considering how important lungs are for endurance (and living in general) it’s surprising to see someone sucking on a cancer stick before taking on 26.2 miles of Chicago.
Strange in a different way: Elvis.
He ran an incredibly fast 3:20 marathon (26.2 miles at 7 minutes 38 seconds each) on a warm day for running, so I’m pretty darn sure Elvis didn’t have a pack of Marlboro’s up his sleeve.
