From the Good News Files: Why Not to Rob A Marathon Runner
According to Fox News, a robber walked into an Olney, Md bagel shop and handed the cashier a note that said "I have a gun. Please give me the money. Don't make any noise.." (At least they said "please"!) The cashier handed over the money and the robber ran away. Unluckily for this would-be criminal, the husband of the bagel shop owner took off after him. And this husband happens to be a marathon runner. The robbers were apprehended within - ahem - 2 minutes.
What's not to love about this story? Here is a world were the robbers are cartoonishly bumbling and seemingly harmless, where the victims prevail, and where all that marathon training really comes in handy. Something to consider the next time you want to skip the treadmill at the gym.
