Every now and then I'll see a runner doing something so crazy or ridiculously hard during a run that it makes me think, "Wow, my run is easy compared to THAT!" This happened a couple of weeks ago when I was running with my team in New York's Central Park and we spotted a guy running while dragging a tire that was attached to a rope around his waist. We saw him and his Michelin several times during our run, so he was definitely doing significant mileage with the tire, not just 100-meter sprints.
我常常能天到,有些跑步者在途中做着疯狂的或是可以说是可笑的自找苦吃的事情。这让我意识到,“噢,与这些人相比,我的跑步是不是太安逸了呀。”那是两星期前,正与同伴们在纽约中央公园跑步,我们发现一个腰上系着绳子拽着轮胎跑的人。我们一边跑一边看。他淡定地拽着轮胎跑了数英里,而非只有百米左右的短跑。

Races, especially marathons, tend to bring out the most adventurous runners because they know they'll have a bigger audience for their crazy antics. Beyond costumed runners, I've seen people who have juggled, yo-yoed, and carried a pizza box on the palm of their hand through an entire marathon. (Those were three different people - not one person doing all of that at once.)  I'm always grateful for the little extra boost that these crazy runners give me when I see them. Because, really, who wants to admit that they got beat by the guy who ran the entire race backwards?

竞赛中,尤其是马拉松运动中,往往能出现最大胆的跑步者。因为他们知道,在这样的运动中疯狂而古怪的行为能得到更多的观众。不仅仅是穿着奇装异服的跑步者,我曾经见到有表演杂耍的、玩溜溜球的、还有手掌上托着比萨盒跑马拉松全程的人。(这是三个不同的跑步者,这些活可不是一个人同时能干的。)这些疯狂的跑步者给了我莫名的激励,我永怀感激。

 What are some crazy things you've seen or done on the run?
有谁愿意承认它的心被倒着跑完全程的跑步者所征服呢?

It's almost March, which means spring weather should be right around the corner. But some parts of the U.S. are still experiencing cold and blustery weather, so runners are still spending lots of time on the treadmill. If you're really bored with indoor running, finding some new running tunes may help. Check out other runners' favorite running songs and get fellow runners pumped up for their runs by adding a few of your own.
已近三月,春风即将吹遍大地。但是美国的部分地区还在经受着严寒与狂风,因此还有相当一段时间,奔跑者们要在跑步机上度过。如果你已经厌倦了室内跑步,找些新歌也许会有帮助。淘一淘其它人奔跑时最喜欢的歌曲,与同伴们分享你的经验,让他们对奔跑充满期望。
