Yes, there was a far greater number of quality runners back then. And a lot fewer plodders as well.
Back then, it was seen as a noble thing to be a "running bum" (like a surf bum) who did little more than work at a running store all week and train his ass off, even though he could never run faster than 5:20 pace for a 10k. Lot's of dudes did that back then, but not so much anymore.
To combat message board spam (by non runners). We are making people answer a brief question before they can post on a thread that is over 20 days old.
If you answer this question you should be able to post.
