ennui stemming from the pointlessness of modern office work. after shuffling around papers all week get to say that you suffered and were a living human being for one day.

And training allows you to enjoy decadent brunches guilt free. "I can get the brioche! I'm training for a marathon!"

titcr

although tbf i run half marathons a lot but i do it for self-actualization (i think a real man ought to be able to run fast, run far, and lift heavy) and i do my best thinking when i'm running because it's so fucking terrible that your brain can't help but come up with ideas for things to do

like painting a self-portrait

marathons: where middle class dorks work hard to run a dull, monotonous, painful race that nobody wins and is detrimental to their health. it requires zero talent and produces nothing of value but the participants get to look down on the little people who don't take part in the lunacy.

It takes no athletic skill whatsoever. You almost never see coordinated accomplished athletes running marathons. They know it is utter flame and a hilariously bad to "stay in shape."

Next time someone in your office mentions they are "competing" in a marathon (99.99% do not "compete" whatsoever in road races), ask them about their prior athletic accomplishments.

There won't be any.

Running a marathon requires many of the same skills as office work; a willingness to just keep plugging away long after it makes any sense to do so, out of a misguided sense of duty or accomplishment

What is hilarious too is that this is terrible for your body. It makes you age faster. Look at the faces of regular runners. They look like shit.

But one positive about this narcissistic hobby (and yes it is narcissistic) is that these people become totally unavailable once they get into it. "Oh sorry can't hang, gotta do [some activity in relation to upcoming race]" So you almost never have to see these people. But in the offchance you do run into them, those three minutes where they humble-brag about their runners life is quite grating.

It is fairly challenging goal while at the same time being obtainable by any moderately healthy adult.

Did any of you do the mile swim in scouts? It is kind of the grown up equivalent.

It's just another form of self-abuse but one that is seen as more socially acceptable. Some people drink too much or do drugs. Some people mutilate their bodies. Some people run marathons.
