Bloody Nipples and Legless Seagulls

I went to Duluth to watch my friends run a half marathon this weekend. Watching marathons has turned into nothing more than a "spot the bloody nipples" event for me. It's like going to NASCAR just for the crashes.

But actually my friends did an impressive job running the half marathon and completely avoided any bloody nipples of their own; probably because we made them such awesomely motivating signs:

But mostly we just ate, drank, and fed the seagulls:

You might think that missing a leg would be a major detriment for a seagull, but I bet that thing gets a TON of pity food. Look at him. You can almost see him milking it for all it's worth. I wouldn't have been surprised to see him shed a single shiny tear, just for effect.

Anyway, congratulations ladies.

Do you see many women with bloody nipples at these events? I would think it would be mainly men with the chafing trouble

Thanks for the crafty posters! They definitely helped. I don't think the bloody nipples bother me as much as the fact that it looks like that girl isn't wearing any pants and both of these people we no doubt seen while you were waiting for me to run by?

Congratulations to your friends who ran!

This is at *least* the second time I have seen the bloody nips on this blog. It's starting to concern me.

I am a little worried about my own half marathon in a couple months. I don't want an involuntary nipplectomy via chafing!

Those nipples are even bloodier than the ones last year! Ouch!

That seagull makes me sad.
