2008 Chicago Marathoner pound down LaSalle. (John j> Kim~Sun-Times)

Did you drag yourself out of bed at 6 this morning, strap on the running shoes and push off into the cold wind blowing down Chicago's streets? Or did you just hit the snooze bar and settling for walking briskly to Starbuck for a latte and a muffin.

On of these was a poor choice today. Here's a clue:

It's National Running Day.

And if your were in the muffin and coffee camp this morning, there's always time after work for a brisk jog. Hell, they don't really specify what kind of running, actually. You could always commit a crime and run from the cops or maybe just run off at the mouth. Maybe those count, too.

But if you do choose the Prefontaine route and pound some pavement, these Running Superfan guys might get you fired up. Sure, they're shilling for Brooks running shoes, but they're still pretty funny. And everybody ... EVERYBODY ... can use some sound advice on nipple care.
