Monk: Mr. Monk and the Marathon Man

A woman is murdered during the San Francisco marathon and Monk suspects her married lover, Trevor McDowell, even though he has a solid alibi which is he was running in the race during the murder. In the meantime, Monk has the chance to visit his hero, an aging runner from Nigeria whom Sharona briefly suspects may be the murderer's accomplice--a theory Monk refuses even to consider.

Episode Quotes
Monk: I had a life before we met.
Sharona: I know you had a life. I just didn't know it involved gym shorts and taking showers with other guys.
Monk: I didn't shower with other guys. I had a note from my doctor.

Monk: (about to shake hands with five people) It's a stampede. Get a wipe ready.

The dead victim has cotton between her toes when she was in her apartment, but in the next scene, the cotton is gone.

Although Stottlemeyer has ordered the other cops not to touch or lean on anything, a cop in the background is leaning against the balcony.
