No, I was not serious nor worried.
I meant the thread in general. I realize that everyone here is too cool for school, but some people consider the experience of qualifying for and running Boston a milestone event in their lives and, in particular, their running lives. I don't understand the point of shitting on it. If the jacket serves as a memento of a memorable experience, who the hell are the people here to judge that? It get exhausting. Don't wear headphones, or else you're a "hobby jogger." Don't run in a local"Turkey Trot," or else you're a "hobby jogger." Don't keep your medal, or else you're a "hobby jogger." And now, don't wear a jacket you purchased at the Boston Marathon, one of America's storied sporting events along with the Kentucky Derby, Masters, and Indy 500, because, of course, that's what "hobby joggers" do.
The insecurity here has no limits.
