One spectator at the London Marathon had little respect for the pain and agony of runners traversing 26.2 miles on Sunday.

In the below video (warning: graphic language in the description), what appears to be a child offers high-fives to runners. That’s not unusual at large marathons.

However, when the participants put their hands out, the spectator flippantly moves to avoid the congratulatory ritual.

As if running a marathon wasn’t already an absurd past-time upon which to be exhausting ourselves.
