Convict wilderness runners don't usually have a great sense of humor.  Most people just don't get it... why would they risk their freedom to run trails?  So Mark always says "If you're gonna poke fun at a trail runner you might try jogging a few miles in his shoes first... at least then when he comes after you, you're a few miles away and you have his shoes."

"I just flew in from Mass to run Wakely, man are my arms tired!"

"Take my wife....please."

My father started running trails when he was 72.  He's 86 now and we haven't got a clue where he is.
