RE: Man wins 3 marathons in 8 days. Uses prize money for son's illness

I catch enough grief from my wife that I don't spend enough time with my kid because of my training. If my son had a life-threatening illness, I would not be running 8-10 hours a week.

This reeks of selfishness, and I hope he gets his priorities in order soon.



His son is NINE MONTHS OLD. What's his dad going to do about this besides make some money? Are we all supposed to be pediatric spine surgeons?

We don't know how long they've known what the chosen procedure to fix this was going to be or how much it was going to cost. If the guy is running 2:24, he's obviously been training for years. Do you really think that a father should sacrifice a big part of his life, running, (and likely some of his sanity) to "be around" another 8-10 hours a week?

YOUR post reeks of selfishness and a narrow-minded superiority. I've lived with a child with a life threatening illness, I'm guessing you haven't. A healthy life has to have balance and I applaud Brian for finding some of that amidst the storm.
