Also acceptable: “I ran a marathon” Nobody says it has to have been completed.
Hey, turn lemons into lemonade.
Still not bad!
Lotsa people give up (I wouldn’t say quit! That’s quite an expenditure of energy!)
That sure beats my mile walk.
Mr C. shows there is still hope for humanity! Running marathons is completely unnatural. In fact, the first person to do it, died on the spot! And they were pretty fit in those days. Even so, people refuse to learn from history, and are therefore doomed to repeat it. Be smart, and exercise responsibly! ;>)
13.1 miles is still quite an accomplishment!
