One of the most overused cliches, oft heard during the first month of the season when a team gets off to either a hot or cold start: "The season is a marathon not a sprint." In other words, don't get too excited by early-season results.
But it really was a marathon -- and then some -- over the weekend for a trio of Marlins running nuts: team president David Samson, general manager Michael Hill and head equipment manager John Silveman.
The three men took part in the Disney Goofy Marathon, which consisted of a half marathon on Saturday, followed by a full marathon on Sunday. They ran as a group, with the Marlins three finishing the half in a time of 2:28:55 and the full in 4:56:00.
