Annual Tradition

It is fall marathon season, which means it is time for another lame article on back of the pack marathoner ruining the race. Come on, what is wrong with people? Good for you if finishing a marathon in six hours isn’t a big deal, but it is for some people and why on earth would you want to deny them that accomplishment? It isn’t like those running sub three hour marathons have to interact with the plus five hour plebs, it’s a different race in the back of the pack, a race where the goal is to finish, and I can’t see anything wrong with that.

  1. Interesting article. As a back of the packer myself, I would bet that if they stopped letting us run, there wouldn’t be the number of marathons to choose from.

    What’s next – we won’t let people become engineers because they got a “C” in a math class?
