I've been to a lot of marathons and I thought I had seen it all until I read today about a man who ran naked in the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati. The au naturel runner, Brett Henderson, was arrested and charged with public indecency and obstructing official business. Officials say that Henderson was running naked in the race and refused to stop when police told him to exit the course, so officers stopped him with a Taser.
What was going through this guy's head? Was he taking extreme measures to avoid chafing? Did he think he could outrun the police because he didn't have clothes weighing him down? Did he assume no one would be able to identify him because he wasn't wearing a race bib? (he obviously had nowhere to pin it!)
No, according to reports, Henderson's mother said that he didn't intentionally run in the nude. He had borrowed a pair of running shorts from his father, but they kept slipping down as he ran. His mom said he kept running without shorts because he was determined to complete the race he had trained for. So I guess he's either the world's dumbest or most determined marathon runner.
