A MAN has shown that is humanly possible to run for 10km without first telling the world about it on Facebook with a link to a JustGiving page.
Martin Bishop forgot to post about his run online, missing out on both humble-bragging about his running prowess and guilt-tripping his friends into donating to charity.
Bishop said: “I’d been planning on running 10km for a while and when I finally did it, I came home and proudly told the wife. Her first response was ‘How much did you raise?'”
“I realised I hadn’t asked for a single penny. But then how was I able to run such an incredible distance? Surely I should have just automatically stopped at 9.99km. It’s weird.”
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “You can go for a run and someone else can separately donate money to charity. There is no causal link.
“In fact, there is no legal, moral or societal requirement to post about your run online at all. So can all you smug jogging pricks please give it a rest.”
