Marathon Monday

For those of you don't know me personally, I ran a marathon a few years ago.  It sucked and I wrote about it.  I journaled about the running experience in the only way I could – through a magnifying glass of grotesque humor.  The journal entries went viral, was featured on radio stations and evolved into this highly addictive blog, leighbones.com, which has been provoking laughter, and reportedly the unexpected urine flow, for over five years now....more
