Meet the ‘McRunner’

Via Chicago Sun-Times:

The idea itself was enough to give weak-stomached critics indigestion.

But Joe “McRunner” D’Amico proved hundreds of naysayers wrong Sunday, by completing the Los Angeles marathon in a personal best time after eating nothing but McDonald’s fast food for a month.

The Palatine dad’s time of 2 hours, 36 minutes and 13 seconds was 41 seconds faster than his previous record, and good enough for 29th place overall in the 26.2 mile race. . .

This proves that Morgan Spurlock was an idiot, no? I still remember he would complain about not being able to sleep and blaming the McDonald's food and neglecting to say he just drank the extra-large size, caffeine filled, Coke. - Greg Pollowitz
