I guess not everyone is a fan of running, nor does everyone have respect for runners.
This story here questions whether those participating in today's NYC Marathon are athletes, but goes beyond that and really slams all marathoners, well, all but the top 500 who are the true athletes, the writer says.
This story kind of hit me from behind as I wasn't expecting something this unflattering so I haven't quite yet wrapped my mind around it, and I do think I want to write something more than this on the matter. But still felt the urge to post it today since today is the NYC Marathon.
Off now to run 13 miles. Not that the writer of that blog post would give a crap...
