Best Race Report Ever via The Oatmeal!

oatmealYou may know Matthew Inman as a cartoonist who writes sometimes scathing, sometimes geeky, and often hysterical comics over at the popular site The Oatmeal. What I didn’t realize until last night is that Inman is also a pretty adept runner.

I was searching for posts about ultramarathon shoes and came across a race report he wrote about running the White River 50 Mile Run. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard reading a race report, and the medal illustrations he received from readers are as good as the race report itself. I highly recommend heading over to The Oatmeal and checking it out!

Below is the winning reader illustration (by Happy Simpleton) and gives a good sense of the content of the race report.

    you JUST saw this? I think he wrote his “race report” over a year ago. My favorite medal was the second one: “I didn’t shit myself and that’s what matters”
