  1. Happy Monday everyone. 26-miles is an incredibly long distance. What’s even more incredible is the fact that professional marathoners can complete the trek in less than 5 hours! Breaking it down, 26-miles converts to 137,280 feet, approximately 55,000 steps or 457.6 football fields. My favorite conversion was the time it’d take to travel that distance by vehicle. According to Google, if you were going 26 miles at 65 mph, you’d reach your destination in 24 minutes!

    There weren’t any new clue words to be had this morning, but all of the anagrams just happened to be. None of them gave me even the slightest hint of trouble which is pretty typical for a Monday. Did you notice “RUN” being spelled out by the first letter of the first three anagrams? I only noticed the coincidence when I was checking to see if they were listed in alphabetical order (which they were not.)

    I don’t know about you, but I was exhausted just by looking at today’s cartoon! The characters may be drenched in sweat, but they all still appear to be in good spirits after going the distance. Each of them had a “J” medal around their necks so they were most likely our first three finishers. My favorite detail was the “flame” logo on the woman’s running shoes. While looking at the characters feet, I just happened to notice that none of them appear to be wearing socks. I’m no runner, but my best guess is that they did so to minimize irritation on their feet.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. Four of them were vowels and six were consonants. The layout appeared to be quite cryptic at first, but not so much when looking at it in reverse! That’s how I found LONG, and the rest of the answer was plucked from the remainder for a speedy finish. Have a magnificent Monday everyone, and keep Jumbling!

  2. GRAVY = Last used on 12/31/19 as VYRAG
    DOUSE = Last used on 10/12/20 as SUDEO
    SPRING = Last used on 11/25/20 as PNRSIG
    JOYFUL = Last used on 09/02/18 as JUOFLY


  3. No sweat (unlike when I ran marathons) but I didn’t think the solution was great. The anagrams were easy also, but this is a Monday J.
    Maybe Angela or Mike can douse my response with gravy so I can spring joyful going forward…..

    • Mig…Good Morning. Maybe not douse your response with Gravy, but sprinkle💦 a little water on it? Of COURSE the solution is great…26 miles? The Marathoners SAID it was SO LONG a run…And when it was over? The runners, leaving, bid one another adieu….They SAID SO LONG to one another…Brilliant! Have a good one, Mig. Be Joyful, be well, and stay safe out there…🏃🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Did you run full marathons, Mig? A few of my friends have run the Boston Marathon, but not professionally. More of a “see if we can finish” sort of thing.

      Wishing you a great week! 🙂

  4. Looked at puzzle before solving anagrams and had absolutely NO CLUE !! Words came easy….then spotted the letters “said”, and the rest of the answer followed soon after. Actually, I think puzzle answer was fairly cryptic today, without doing words first. Have a great Monday and start to your week.

    • The dialogue and cartoon sentence seemed to be the only real clues today, Terry. Great job on finding “said” because that was the last one to come into view for me. 🙂

  5. Puzzle answer was a problem today but I have Said So Long to that frustration. it won’t Douse my desire to Spring into Tuesday Jumble with a Joyful heart and that’s Gravy. Chilly in OldOmaha today. Be safe and be well.

    • Well said, OO. I truly envy your optimism, and wish you all the best with tomorrow’s puzzle.
      Stay warm, my friend! 🙂

  6. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…🏃🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♀️

    🏃🏻‍♂️A Marathon is no small feat, it’s arduous and it’s tough,
    The first ten miles are GRAVY, but then sometimes things get rough
    That SPRING in step may slow down, runners pray they’ll feel no pull,
    ‘Cause running 26 miles? It may not be all JOYFUL…
    Along the way they DOUSE themselves…cool water feels so good,
    And hydrating’s important, so they drink too, as they should…
    And when the run that was “so long” brought them where they belonged?
    The Finish Line…It’s over!…So the runners SAID SO LONG! 🏃🏻‍♂️

  7. 🍝 After they all SAID SO LONG, she knew things wouldn’t be JOYFUL until she’d DOUSE any doubt surrounding the originality of her GRAVY recipe…so she couldn’t wait to SPRING into action and prepare it…🍝

    🍅🫑 She always loved when SPRING arrived, the JOYFUL sense it brought,
    She couldn’t wait to plant and DOUSE the seedlings that she’d bought
    The cultivating? GRAVY…with that she’d never gone wrong…
    And the harvesting would last ‘til Fall, the time she SAID, “SO LONG”…🫑🍅

  8. Cute Puns and Poems, People! ☺️ Thought one of the solution words might be GOOD, but that didn’t work, so had to “unsee” that! Solved rather quickly after. Have a Fun Monday, All!

  9. Anagrams were a Monday snap,but not so for the cartoon solution.Even the 2 letter word,so,took awhile to stumble upon,but long popped into mind,given the length of the marathon,quickly followed by the complete “said so long” solution.Things going well here in Illinois,but a forecast of Snow(?) has us not thinking Spring.

    • Luckily the 2-4” forecast for us last Friday never materialized, Chuck. It ended up being nothing but rain. Wishing the same for you!

  10. True to your Mondays! However It took me a while to come up with the answer… there were so many possible 4 letters words. I got to LONG … then it was gravy! I tried so many time to fit the word GLAD!!!
    Enjoy the week

  11. No problem with the puzzle this morning. I too initially thought one of the words might be “good” but then saw “said” and the rest of the cartoon answer fell into place nicely. Wishing all of you a good Monday.

    • You’re in good company today, Betty. It seems that most everyone solved it that way!
      Enjoy the race of your day! 🙂

  12. Hi all – No problem with the words today. My first thought was “took a rest” for the answer, but when I wrote the letters I happened to see SAID, and that showed it.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “He still had such a JOYFUL SPRING in his step upon completing the Thanksgiving Day marathon, his jealous competitors decided to appropriately DOUSE him with GRAVY instead of Gatorade.”

    • All of the runners looked tired, and I thought the solution was going to focus on that as well. A nice little Monday surprise!
      Have a great start to your week, Steve! 🙂

  13. Hi Everyone…Reading the comments, I’m wondering that if the answer had been presented differently…phrased as SAID, “SO LONG”, if it would have been more of an immediate solve. The first two parts of dialogue, “I didn’t know if I’d make that last mile”, and “I know” has the two men SAYING that the run was, in fact, SO LONG. The last line of dialogue, “See ya” = saying SO LONG. So in both scenarios, in reality, they all SAID…”SO LONG”. Just a thought…🤷🏻‍♀️
