Friday Fun: Dallas Marathon Edition

In honor of this weekend’s “Metro PCS Dallas Marathon, brought to you by MetroPCS” I thought a running game might be appropriate. Today’s game is called Please Stop Running, which is, coincidentally, my exercise mantra. Our protagonist is a Run Lola Run-esque character, and you have to jump and slide and shoot nuclear waste maybe? I’m not very good at video games.

And what better way to drown out boring video game noise than with some Iron Maiden? Fugazi’s “Long Distance Runner” is also acceptable, as is Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.”

Oh, and good luck to our Laura Kostelny, who’s running Sunday.



  • Zac Crain

    “The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner,” also by Iron Maiden, or “Get Me Away From Here, I’m Dying,” by Belle and Sebastian (more for the sentiment).

  • Jason Heid

    Or possibly Belle and Sebastian’s “The Loneliness of the Middle Distance Runner.”
