The 2011 New York City Marathon was our 65th marathon running side-by-side from start to finish. We were fortunate to be included as part of the New York Marathon Social Media Team and spent some time thinking about how we could capture the spirit of the New York City Marathon.
No bothered with our time, in fact the longer we stayed on the course and enjoyed the wonderful crowd and volunteers the better it was we made it our mission to take as may pictures of the signs being displayed by the crowd.
Picking the best was a tough gig. We decided on a few categories:
- Signs that made us laugh
- Encouragement signs
- Profanity signs
- Most popular/common sign
- Others that stood out
In this post we profile the Top 10 Signs that made us laugh. In other posts we will share the other categories.
There were so many wonderful signs – thanks to all the spectators. Our top 2 reflected current events and the rest will no doubt return to amuse future runners.
No 10 – Black Toe Nails Are Sexy
No 9 -You should have taken a dump while you had the chance
No 8 – Its long and hard
No 7 – Runners have balls – other sports just play with them
No 6 – Chafed nipples turn me on
N0 5 – Even the 7 is running today
For non-New Yorkers the 7 is train on the subway
No 4 – This is by far the worst parade ever
N0 3 – Welcome 2 da Bronx – Run for your life
N0 2 – Occupy the finish line
Our photography skills are somewhat primitive. Sadly the glare of the sun made our original picture a little hard to read. Apologies for filling in the top of the sign to make it more readable.
No 1 – U trained for this longer than Kim Kardashian was married
