Running for Viagra

Posted by Filed Under: Running is Funny

viagra-picture_290.jpgDateline London: “Athletes looking for a performance boost are increasingly turning to a little blue pill more usually taken for its off-the-field benefits: Viagra.

“Some sports authorities say the drug is now finding a following among athletes.

“The World Anti-Doping Agency is currently studying Viagra’s effects in athletes, but hasn’t yet banned it. Experts are divided over whether it actually offers athletes an edge.”

As a public service, CompleteRunning.com provides this series of advertising slogans to help Pfizer market Viagra to athletes:

* Viagra – Because it’s a game of inches.

* Viagra – Great for racing and tapering.

* Viagra – When the competition is stiff, so are you.

* Viagra – Make your long runs longer.

* Viagra – Runner’s high.

* Viagra – The women in your life will run faster, too.

* Viagra – Now when you hit the wall, you’ll knock it down.

* Viagra – Because you can’t teach size.

* Viagra – Play hardball.

* Viagra – Now your only worry will be motion control.

* Viagra – When you need to take it to the next level.

* Viagra – You can’t stop him. You can only hope to contain him.

* Viagra before the race. BodyGlide after.

* Viagra – Not for use during relays.

About Mike Antonucci

I ran 6-minute miles when I was in the military, then tapered for 20 years. Two-time marathoner (3:43 PR), my next goal is to stay healthy enough to run another. There are literally thousands of people handing out running advice and serious tips. I prefer to focus on the humorous or odd facets of our shared obsession. Let's face it, running is funny.

    You guys sure do stay on top of the important issues!

    I agree, though. Definitely not for relays. (Is that a baton in your pocket…)

    Viagra – When getting to the start line is just as important as getting to the finish line.
