Pain, no gain.

Marathon entrance fee : $20
Pink sweater : $40
Running shoes : $120
Your face distorted by pain while you nearly blow a coronary
just before xmas : priceless

Update : I've just read in the news that a 51 year-old runner died of a heart attack during this urban race (Course de l'Escalade in Geneva). I just hope it's not this guy, though my comment remains the same and proves itself all the more appropriate :-P

I've always maintained that sports in general, and running in particular, are unhealthy and dangerous, not to mention potentially lethal.

I hear Rock Star came out with a very nice Table Tennis game. Perhaps I'll get a hold of that, for my own safety's sake...
