Runnersworld – Adam Campbell absolutely destroyed the world record for running a marathon in a business suit by clocking 2:35:53, good for sixth overall, at Sunday’s Victoria Marathon in British Columbia. The previous record was 3:24:46. Before the race, Campbell said he was shooting for sub-3:00. He met that goal and then some, finishing less than seven minutes off his PR of 2:29:11.”It’s a beautiful day but definitely a little hot for suit marathoning,” Campbell said after.On a Letsrun.com thread, Campbell wrote that he wore an off-the-rack suit and cotton dress shirt. “I left the top button on my suit and shirt done up and the tie knotted and pulled tight the whole way,” Campbell noted.”It was incredibly hot,” Campbell told Runner’s World Newswire. “I felt nauseous from mile 18 on, but just kept dumping water on my head to keep cool. It was worth the extra water weight in the suit.”
Just another marathon loser who didn’t get enough attention growing up, probably sucked at sports and now feels the need for complete strangers to pay attention to them and cheer for them and tell them how awesome they are. Hey buddy if you’re going to run a marathon in a suit and brag about how awesome you are at least have the common courtesy to actually do what you say. I mean you’re clearly wearing fucking sneakers here. That’s horseshit. You want to be “Mr. Run A Marathon in a Suit Guy”? Well wear Johnston and Murphy’s like a man. Until then get out of my face with this bullshit.
