Pretty Sure The Author Was Referring To One Forum:
“Some people in the distance-running community derisively refer to ultrarunners as ‘hobby joggers’ or ‘glorified fast-walkers.’ As they see it, if Walmsley can run Western States in 14:09, surely the fittest marathoners – who average sub-five-minute miles – could finish much faster. To those who’ve made a life battling through 100-mile runs, this line of thinking is demeaning. Walmsley will soon provide the denizens of distance-running forums, and other arenas where such internecine debates take place, actual data to argue over.”
