Ah, Sunday brunch. After a week’s worth of work and a weekend’s worth of going out, eggs, pancakes, mimosas and coffee are the answer to all of our problems. That is until the L.A. Marathon comes around and ruins everything. Angelenos took to Twitter to vent their frustrations that the marathon seriously encroached upon brunch time. (Or maybe they just made us feel badly about destroying a chilaquiles burrito in literally two minutes.)
