LRC stupidity at its finest wrote:
Because LRC is full of insecure a-holes who dream of breaking 3 hours in the marathon but don't have the balls to train for it. So because every now and then they run some 6-minute miles and call it 'speedwork' they feel entitled to look down on people who can walk 15-minute miles for 12 hours straight. This same people call 12 miles a 'long run.'
Fixed it for you. And I know hundreds of sub 3 'thoners who could be on the podium of most ultra races without any additional training. That should tell you how pathetic the competition is in the ultra world.
