400-Meter Run at High School Track Meet Ends in Disaster [Video]

No offense, but running around a track is just kind of boring. And most of the people competing in the track meet would probably agree. This is not to say it's not impressive; it's just boring.

So the fact that we are posting a video from a high school track meet means something much more interesting than the event happened.

Female Runner Uses Her Running App to Draw Dicks

You have to love the creativity people show when getting a new app. The app might be intended for something completely innocent, like tracking your kids or maybe keeping track of your running accomplishments.

For example, the Nike+ app tracks your runs, so you can watch your progress as you run longer and harder.

Our intern, Catie, is a collegiate runner with Aquinas College.

Metalhead Ned Preps For His First 5K Run

I am not really a runner, nor am I a fitness junkie. Jackie and Eric Zane are the runners at this station, so when I look at them, it can be pretty intimidating. They run 25k's, which is just crazy, but inspirational. They are also quite fit. Me on the other hand, not very fit and have a significant amount of weight, also not that much motivation. So what did I do? Signed up for a 5k of course!
