Marathon runners love to read signs along the race course to help break the monotony. If you're planning on watching a marathon, make some signs -– the runners will love you for it. Funny spectator signs are always a good distraction. Here are some ideas:

  • "In our minds, you're all Kenyans."

  • "Your feet hurt because you are kicking so much butt!"

  • "Your legs will forgive you...eventually."

  • "Don't stop -- people are watching."

  • "Worst Parade Ever"

  • "Chafe now...brag forever."

  • "That's not sweat, it's your fat cells crying."

  • "You've got stamina! Call me!"

  • "Hurry up, we're missing brunch"

  • "Pain now...beer later."

  • "If a marathon was easy, it would be called your mother."

  • "I'm sure it seemed like a good idea 4 months ago."

  • "Run like you stole something."

  • "Smile if you're not wearing underwear"

  • "Toenails are for sissies."

  • "My legs hurt just waiting for you."

  • "Run now, poop later"

  • "You're 26.2% crazy for doing this."

  • "Where are you all going?"

  • "Hurry up...beer misses you!"

  • "You're not slow. You're just enjoying the course."

  • "Stop reading this and keep running!"

  • "Beat Oprah!"
