When you run a 5k(3.1 miles) then take ice baths after. Often mistaken for its derivative Netflix in chill referring f*** but no it means just run and take an ice bath. So shut the hell up football players and stop saying you wanna "5k and chill" with the cross country team
jim:" hey susie wanna 5k and chill"

To "run a 5k" means to take a shit, or dump, or some form of fecal expulsion.

It is in reference to one Warren Buchanan, who, whilst running a 5k for charity, was prompted at mile two and a half to run off the course in a nearby parking lot and pop a squat. Also keep in mind he was wearing an all-white track suit at the time, which is why he had to run off of the course immediately, and not run the additional seven minutes to finish the course in fear of defiling himself in front of hundreds of runners.

When someone is confused about distance and middle distance running and calls a 5k a 5k Marathon.
5k= 5,000 meters on a road/track/cross country/etc 3.1 miles

A Marathon is 42.195 kilometers or 26.2 miles.
The Marathon has Legendary roots.

According to ancient Greek history, the original marathon was ran by a Legendary soldier Pheidippides (Philippides) from a battlefield near the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C.

According to lore, he died shortly after the delivery.

1/2 Marathon=13.1mi

The Marathon is not a 5k or 10k, but there are often Half Marathon races on Marathon race day.
Average Joe, “I just ran my first 5k marathon. I have never run that far in my life!”
Track Star, “smh..”
