New Marathon Running and Knitting Record

No, that isn’t a misprint. I can’t imagine there have been a lot of entries in this category, but still. Kudos to this dude. Associated Press tells us that a University of Central Missouri professor has set a new mark in the Guinness Book of World Records for knitting a scarf while running in the Kansas City Marathon. David Babcock finished the marathon in 5 hours, 48 minutes and 27 seconds and knitted a scarf of over 12 feet in length during his run. The old record for scarf knitting while running a marathon was just under seven feet, so Mr. Babcock crushed it. Yes, gang, there was a previous record. Both the new and record holders do knitting projects like these to benefit Alzheimer’s disease research, so I say knit and run as long as you can!  DB
