And how will sending an e-mail to an ESPN presenter "help the sport?" It won't. It'll make the sender feel better for a few minutes, but it will do nothing. In fact, if SVP reads the e-mail it will be a miracle. It was a throwaway line in an hour long show. He probably doesn't even remember saying it.

You seem to be espousing the virtues of making every five minutes count. While I agree with you to some extent, it seems that you took about the same time it would have taken to write the email to post on letsrun.com. He's supporting our sport, and the email does not take long to write.
