Someone ran a half marathon in full hockey pads

Wednesday November 19th, 2014

One very fit and possibly crazy hockey fan decided to run a half marathon at Disneyland in full pads.

The man did not wear skates because that would be too insane even for the internet, and he did have second thoughts about running through 13.1 miles of Anaheim Ducks territory in a Kings jersey.

The half marathon is Avengers-themed, so the runners were cheered on all along the route by various comic book characters, leading to the surreal sight of a hockey player high-fiving Spiderman and Venom in the middle of a long distance run, because Disneyland is the happiest, and weirdest, place on earth.
