Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I can't run even a mile, but I've walked the 3-Day three times! (well, most of the 120 miles anyway)

I couldn't run a 5k.

Heck I couldn't even run a 0.0000000000000000000000000005k.

I guess it's time to hit the gym.

I like running the 5k races.. I doubt I'd ever really do any longer ones.

But, what I really like is riding bicycles. I could ride 20-30 miles per day with no problem. I could get into doing some bike races for fun.

Last year a friend and I rode from northern Utah down to Las Vegas (just under 400 miles). It was my first self-supported bicycle tour and it was awesome.

Anyway, sorry to get off on a tangent. Back on the 5k note, I am running the local Valentine's day 5k next weekend, so that should be cool.

Collapse in a quivering heap with assorted bodily fluids running down your legs.

And they called it a "fun run."

Maybe, with a little endurance training and plenty of Gatorade. ;)

I got my varsity letter in Cross Country. I've never run since. I like my knees. I walk a 5k every day though, and it's one nice brisk pace for the whole thing. I'm gonna live to be 150! :-P

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)
