Subject: RE: 13.1 Sticker
Sometimes I don't get some of you Letsrun posters. MOST here would say it's not the fact that you can complete a race but that you do it QUICKLY. This is why ultra marathoners are demonized here (though, you CAN actually try to run an ultra QUICKLY if you want!).
So, who says the guy is proud that he COMPLETED one. Maybe he ran it in 1:04 and is proud of that. Some people just have a race they gravitate towards. Seems fine to me to put that sticker on their car.[/quote]
You're right and what some of these juvenile idiots don't get is that the reason most race directors put on road races is because of all the Gallowalkers and joggers who are proud to complete a 5K/13.1/whatever.
I ran road races when there were 50 guys tops (NO girls), and everyone was in it to be competitive.
I don't think we'd have our local 5Ks or big city marathons if it stayed that way. Appreciate the people who make it possible for you to race whenever you want. And you know what? Most of them think you're very cool for being as fast as you are. I'm NOT fast by letsrun standards, but I can finish near the front of my local races and people think I'm some kind of god. It's crazy.
