Couple Divorce, Then Run Marathon To See Who Gets Everything

May 15th, 2017

STARVED ROCK, IL – In a brief document signing ceremony at Starved Rock State Park Saturday morning, Jan and David Smitherson both finalized their divorce paperwork and agreed to submit all property and money to the winner of the marathon race held later in the day.

“It was a beautiful ceremony.” A family friend told The Cob. “I have my money on Jan though, Dave’s got a little beer belly going on. I doubt he can even walk, let alone run.”

“We didn’t want to go through a messy divorce so we just said whoever wins gets everything.” David told The Cob early Saturday morning.

“He’s a douche-lord, I’m really hoping to kick his butt.” Mrs. Smitherson was overheard stating as she talked to race officials.

As the race concluded Saturday questions were being asked about the couples physical abilities as neither of them finished and the paperwork became a voided document.
