I have my friend Mary Tremblay to thank for this. An accomplished runner years before I had even thought of lacing up my running shoes, Mary sent me this link, below, to one of the funniest running videos you’ll see.
Watch as a group of rowdy hillbillies heckle runners in the Franklin Half Marathon. It’s a long clip, but well worth watching. Trust me.
Banjo music, hillbilly running in his overall, a kidnapped runner (serious!) and THE best quote ever, from one Mr. Red Duck Cantrell:
“We had all stayed up drinking moonshine all night and next thing you know a bunch of people in tight shorts started running by”
Fabulous stuff, but perhaps not so much fun for the poor fellow they hoiked off the road for a while.
Here’s a link to the race website with more brilliant photos.
Why no Pakistan?
? Ikram Fazli ? Kya matlab?
The Pakistan flag is missing from your list above.
Ikram, it’s because you haven’t checked the blog directly via runninginindia.rocks but via FB (i think). As a test, wont you please go directly to the blog and I can then check whether a Pakistani flag appears! Thanks
