RE: Wired's Nicholas Thompson on Boston: "It’s a terrible course if you want a personal best." Agree or Disagree

Hello! I’m the editor in chief at Wired. Never coached anyone. Am slower than most people on these boards. But the article about Boston is based on interviews with some pretty smart folks and a couple past winners of the race.


Quite frankly I am appalled that you have the gall to openly post here with your woefully inadequate credentials.

I read your piece on "running" a marathon in less than two hours+age and nearly hurled my phone in disgust. Unless you happen to be ten years old, I cannot take seriously any of the conclusions or information contained within that hobby jogger trifle you cobbled together with a guy who knows "math" and some losers from "Nike" and "Naomi's fashion designer".

I will not be bothered to investigate further, but I presume you fall similarly short of the required $500k per annum+supermodel wife which are also essential to contributing to this forum. Should you provide photographic proof to the contrary, I may be willing to concede the final point.

You will find good company in the Runner's World forums -- I recommend you peddle your wares there.

Good day, sir!
