Anon,

I now delete troll comments. Find a better use for your time.

A comment by Teledude:

I was at the Machine Shed. I was at Indianola...but I just spent about a half hour with Todd and Sarah in my hometown of Storm Lake Iowa as they snuck in for a quick marathon run!

Unbelievable!

Totally unannounced and staying very low profile. I jokingly told her, "no, no this isn't what we meant when we said 'Run Sarah run!" LOL

I couldn't fight my way through the crowds to shake her hand at the restaurant or yesterday in Indianola...so I feel so totally blessed to be able to spend so much time with them just chatting personally like regular folks. They are truly an amazing down to earth couple.

I'm trying to figure out how to get my cell phone picture into my computer.

What an amazing weekend!

As a runner myself, I will tell you that the secret service guys will not be able to keep up with her, unless they spend countless hour training for distance running.

Does she know that running in the grass is a twisted ankle waiting to happen?

Right Wingnut said...

Bos,

She's passing the slower runners. She likely started in the back.

By the way, I run on grass all the time.

You got me with the headline RW. Funny. :)

I saw that she had a run in her stocking the other day. How can you deny that this is a clue that she is definitely running?

She also had bRUNch with some people the other day. If she weren't running, why would she eat a meal that has the word RUN included in it?

Sarah Palin averaged an impressive 8:00 per mile for her half marathon.
George Bush was our best runner president until he had to stop because of knee problems. Bush ran 3:44.52 at the Houston marathon in the 1990's. That is a very impressive time for a marathon.

Rick Perry RUNS his mouth off quite a bit. To bad it outpaces his brain.

In other words, RWN, you don't like it when others (myself included) tell you there's something wrong with this woman?

she could use her running in an ad like romney did back in 08. They need to get together and promote fighting obesity in this country.

Ellie, see to the beam in your own eye please.

This is such an amateurish photoshop job that I CANNOT believe that Van Susteren thought anybody would take it seriously. Notice how she's magically hovering above the grass. Geez..

The walking folks don't seem to notice her at all. They aren't even looking in her direction, as though she weren't there?

What is Greta up to? Is she just goading Sarah?

Dan, My goodness! Talk about touchy? What? Can't stand thinking women? I have NO idea why you hate me. Feeling is not mutual. But hey, to each his reach. FYI. That photo looks 'odd' to me. Can't put my finger on it. It has nothing to do with the subject. It' just looks 'odd' in composition.

sorry, forgot. 755 was me. Ellie.

It doesn't matter if it looks odd...SHE WAS THERE...there is other evidence to prove it. I understand you have a distaste for Palin, but pick your battles because you really seem unhinged...even people in your own camp are getting tired of your endless assaults on Palin.

Teledude must be in on it too, because he, his wife, and Palin had their photo taken after the race. You can see it here: http://iowans4palin.blogspot.com/2011/09/governor-sarah-palin-is-running.html

She's an avid runner, who not long ago, ran a sub 4-hour marathon. I've talked to her about it, and the evidence is online.

I'll leave DD's and SmEllie's comments up to show everyone what baffoons they are.

LA Times interviews Teledude. The photo of him, his wife and Palin are in the article.

This post is kind of off the political beaten path, but I can admire someone who runs. I should exercise more myself....

I think she was signaling her supporters "This is the only kind of running I'm doing." She's trying to let them down easy.
