You are a hobby jogger. Why would a pro waste an effort of running a marathon without actually making any bonus money due to the weather slowing the race? Don't compare yourself to athletes who run for a living, two different worlds. Anyone could have finished the darn race but for the few top guys there it didn't make sense from a financial standpoint. If they don't hit certain standards then they make little money. This Sarah girl got famous for simply finishing but in all reality she is far from top girl even in USA. She hasn't lived up to the hype because people pumped her Boston performance up without actually looking into the real reasons behind her high placing. Many girls getting less attention who would eat her for lunch in a marathon right now and they don't have sponsorships!
Sarah Sellers vs. Allie kieffer
Kieffer would absolutely crush this girl. And Allie ain’t a stick skinny chick either, which to me means she could have certainly faired well at Boston and possible contend with desi for the W.
