Found strange news about a marathon runner

Sunday, October 27, 2013

On October 19, David Babcock finished a Kansas City marathon in 5 hours, 48 minutes and 27 seconds while knitting a scarf. Knitting experts measured the scarf he created along the route at just more than 12 feet long.

    LOL. He must be one heck of a knitter!! I wonder if he knows someone with a really big neck. What does one do with a 12 foot long scarf?

  Impressive. I wonder if he could knit mitts to go with the scarf?

    That is awesome. Is he for hire to either run a marathon for me or knit a scarf I need for Xmas?
