RE: How do you classify a hobbyjogger?

Hobby joggers are the economic fodder that fuels sponsorship of the elite end of a road race. Embrace and applaud them. Without them top runners would still be getting a couple of bucks hidden in the toes of the shoes offered as prizes to winners or pawning TVs awarded as prizes to help defer the cost of being a runner.

As a fitness runner I look down on the elite runners. These are either piss-poor people from the undeveloped countries trying to escape poverty(these I pity) or some fools making running their professional career.(these people's sanity I question) The best runners are usually(almost always?) the former.

I also look down on the idiotic hobby runners wasting their money on useless stuff.
