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.
