It wasn't an official event, but Ryan Chukuske decided he wanted to run the entire Mankata Marathon course backward. He did so at 3 a.m., before the actual regular marathon started at 8 a.m. in Mankato, Minn., ABC News reported.

Runners never cease to make the rest of us feel terrible about ourselves.
