Running can be funny. There, I said it.

Challenging, painful at times and sweaty… but also damn funny.

And to a comic strip junkie like me, it’s great to see talented writers/artists making light of pounding the pavement.

Each day I’m sure to catch the latest panels featuring my favorite runner/musician/custodian “Frazz.” Jef Mallett’s strip is both funny and thought-provoking and one of my daily treats.

And if you haven’t caught the “out there” and damn witty musings of The Oatmeal, you’re missing out. Matthew Inman waxes wacky about everything from exploding kittens to overly-sensitive xenomorphs to the awesomeness that is Nicholas Tesla. He also likes to poke fun at running (let’s hear it for The Blerch).

Check ’em both out here:

Another strip to add to the list that “brings the funny on hard” is Steve Moore’s “In The Bleachers.” His humor covers the absurdity in and around all things “sport-related”… and that includes running.  You can check out his strip every day at Go (a good site for comic strip aficionados).

Here’s todays strip:


So before you lace up your shoes each day, stretch out your funny bone first with a little bit of running humor.

Laugh hard… and Run on!

Note: A busy week ahead everyone (darn those deadlines), so I probably won’t be posting again until the end of the week as I prep for the Surf City Half Marathon.
