Pranksters, rejoice—April Fools' Day has arrived. The one day each year you can pull pranks on your family, friends and coworkers, and get away with it.

Here are some jokes to try with the endurance athletes and fitness fanatics in your life.


  • Soak their running socks in water. Keep one pair hidden so you can give it to them to actually use once they get really upset.
  • Hide only the left foot of all of their running shoes.
  • Replace their favorite Dri-FIT or moisture-wicking clothing items with cotton clothes.
  • Map out their daily run and find an ideal time to spray them with water.
