Three Brothers

USMC MarathonImage via Wikipedia
Three brothers share a family sport: a non-stop marathon.

The oldest one is fat and short and trudges slowly on.
The middle brother's tall, slim, and keeps a steady pace.
The youngest runs just like the wind, speeding through the race.

"He's young in years, we let him run," The other brothers say "Cause though he's surely number one, he's second, in some way."

Who are the three brothers?


  1. I believe they're the three hands on a clock (with the second hand "second in some way").

  2. You got it oudeis. The three brothers were the three hands on a clock.

    I'm kind of surprised anyone got this one. I thought it was very hard.
