Runners, like Marines, are a special kind of people. Marines get the job done. Runners do the same.
I love this quote.
Oh, thems is fightin’ words.
I am not a fan of runners judging other runners.
If the answer to even one of these is “NO” then keep your thoughts to yourself! Who, after someone tells you they ran a half-marathon yesterday, says ANYTHING except “That’s awesome!”? Ummm…no one.
Let me lay a little science on you. Soreness happens because of a variety of physiological reasons. Diet, training, course, lactic threshold, speed, exertion levels during the race, recovery practices, and a whole host of other factors feed into why someone is sore after a race, PR or not.
You know what soreness tells me? That runner worked hard.
Who feels me on this one? Ouch!
So next time you feel the urge to critique another runner’s performance, DON’T. Tell them they are Wonder Woman/Superman and give ‘em a high five.
My money is on Wonder Woman. Hell hath no fury like a woman in a bustier.
Be nice. Don’t be Runner I.K.E.
Now go out and run!
