Still funnier than the majority of the signs in the link.

I remember seeing the young woman in the last pic as a young teenager running through a neighborhood I often worked in.   Even at 14 y/o, she was setting national records in her age group for the mile and won a couple of national championships in track and cross-country as a high-schooler.  Skinny little thing with blond hair hanging down past her waist but you could tell she was born to run.  She finished 3rd overall (1st American woman) at Boston in her first marathon.   I am sure all her homies in the area are proud.  Represent!

They were all pretty bad after number five or so.

The only deduction I can give that sign is the location. Judging by the background he's in the Framingham/Natick stretch, and that sign needed to be at the top of Heartbreak Hill for a perfect score.

At a recent half marathon I ran at about mile 11 I saw someone holding a sign that read:

"IF THIS WERE EASY IT WOULD BE CALLED YOUR MOM"

Took me the next half mile to get my breathing back under control from the laughing.

If those are the funny ones I would hate to see the dumb ones.

If any of the marathoners did run through Lexington, then they're really lost.

Hello fellow CBS Sunday Morning viewer!

My sign would be: "Good God, you people are exhausting. I think I'm gonna go take a nap."

It appears a lot of girls/women do "Kiss Me I'm_______" signs.

Try it clothed, like these people did.  I made the same mistake.

And his response on Twitter when ESPN asked his permission to run that same photo.

When I first ran in 2002 I was passing Wellesley College (known as the scream tunnel) and first saw those signs. So I approached one woman and puckered up... all sweaty, with little white spittle flecks in the corners of my mouth. Her reaction was one of, "I didn't think this through!" Good sport she was, she went through with it.
