Your Distance Does Not Define You

Your distance does not define you. Why every runner deserves respect, regardless of the distance they run or race.

"That's the kid's race." That's what a friend of mine heard from a fellow runner recently at an event of several ultra distances. The runner was talking about the shortest distance on offer - the 50k distance my friend was about to run - as if it was somehow not worth doing, something easy a kid could handle. My friend described the atmosphere … [Continue reading]
