Running is not a game of skills or team sports. It provides a minuscule amount of entertainment to avg people and that includes 90% of the people who run races. So either you run fast and win or you don't. Nobody owes you anything so you can run twice a day with a power nap in between. It is not unfair. There is no job called Sub Elite professional Runner. Even in baseball, there are a plenty of minor league players who make peanuts and will never see the light of the day.
couldnt agree more... i really have no sympathy for people that cant get money to run.
