Man vs. Horse Marathon

Who knew, right?

Well, apparently it's been around for a while, although this bit at Letsrun.com is the first I had ever heard of it. Here's the Wikipedia article on it.

I don't know why, but I feel sorry for the poor horses. I mean, if humans want to kill themselves for an absolutely meaningless time, go ahead. But do the horses really want to run hard for more than 20 miles? Hmmmm, I think I'll just continue to run against other humans, thanks.

Let's race!
