A non stop marathon Riddle

A non stop marathon is the shared favorite sport of three brothers.

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

“He is young in years, we let him run!” the other two brothers explained, “‘because though he is surely number one, he is second, in a way.”

Why is it?
