We get it runners, you are putting your legs to better use than the rest of us failures who can barely move from the sofa to the fridge without getting cramp and having to take a time out.
Here are 11 things all non-runners think about marathons.
1. Convincing yourself it can’t be that hard to run a marathon.
2. Deciding that if people can do it in fancy dress it must be easy.
3. Hating whoever decided it should be 26.2 and not 25 miles.
4. Failing to understand how there is a waiting list for this pain-fest.
5. Pondering why anyone decides to take up running as a hobby.
6. Hating everyone who shares training routes on Facebook.
7. Being confused by the obsession with Vaseline.
