Runners work much harder physically and have great mental strength, but on Sunday afternoon I can't imagine much more stress and pressure in a sporting arena. I think it is partly because of the amount of time you have to stand around and battle the demons. Actually similar to running in a sense, but I gotta say that holding it together on the back nine at Augusta with a 1 stroke lead is pretty tough.
I think we are comparing apples to oranges. Imagine leading by 15 meters in the last mile of a marathon. Your body is begging you to slow down, but you don't know how much the other guy has left in the tank...
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.
