Describe your funniest running/fitness moment:

I was running my first 10k and was starting to fade about 7k in. Then a 70-something War Vet came and started chatting beside me. I guess it’s not a funny moment, but I realized what he’d been through and it helped me with my last three km. I wasn’t about to let him beat me too…but he did have some great stories to tell.

You can only pick one…
