Happy Jogger with Boston Jacket
RE: If I see someone wearing a Boston jacket I know they’re a hobby jogger

Sorry but the Boston jacket is the ultimate signal of “hobby jogger”. It means you’re above average but not really that good. And please don’t wear your medal everywhere afterwards.


I assume you have a marathon PR that commands appearance fees to major marathons and make a living out of running. If that is the case, you should not throw s**t at your cash cow. If that is not the case, then you are an hobby jogger.

I am not really a medal fan, but after finishing Boston in today's conditions I will be wearing the medal for the rest of the day. And I am considering buying a jacket too. It was the hardest race in my life and I considered dropping out many times along the course. I am proud I did not.
