When You Are Supposed to be Marathon Training but Just Want to Marathon Watch Netflix

TextThe other day I was chatting with a friend about Seinfeld- it’s a great show and he asked me what episode he should watch that night. I spouted off a bunch of favorites but then I remembered exactly what episode he needed to see. The one about the NYC Marathon! Ha it’s hilarious.

Half Marathon today. Netflix marathon tomorrow.

Who is going to hold this sign out for me come November? So how about we “marathon” shows about the marathon! Here are some funny episodes to get into the running spirit!

 

So of course #1 is Seinfeld S7E5 – The Hot Tub
