The website Dumb Runner is a hoot, especially if you’re tired of all those “17 really expensive things you need to own to start running” stories. (from the Sep 9, 2017 NY Times)

Link to Dumb Runner.

Launched in 2015 by longtime writer, author, and runner Mark Remy, Dumb Runner is an online destination for runners who enjoy laughter and pie.

Here is what you will find at Dumb Runner: Odd and amusing news, Monty Python references, beginner-friendly advice, and answers to your most pressing questions. Some of it will even be running related!

While Dumb Runner does not take itself seriously, it does take running seriously. Most of the time.
