I will still be disappointed when Poohbear hangs up her marathon shoes though after Brighton .... it will be a dark day, not only for Brighton marathon but UK running in general.

 

You appear to have the internet equivalent of 'short man syndome'; so little confidence in your own ability that you have to denigrate anyone you find that is slower than you.


As a "short" person I find that highly offensive!!!

So it`s ok to have a go at someone because of their height (which they can do nothing about)

But it`s not ok to say anything about anyone who may be slower. (which they can do something about)

I would have thought a T-shirt would be best, something that highlights the length of the run etc ...... that way when people see you in it, you can utter the immortal words ...'Oh didn't you know? That's right ...... Im an ultra runner'

Slow person syndrome?

Vertically Challenged Person Syndrome?

Is this better?

You seem quite angry - I apologise

I find the word denigrate offensive too. It means to blacken. What is it with wanting to offend short black people?

My point is these guys may not ne as speedy or train as much as you but there efforts are real and take a lot of guts. (Starting from scratch is tough). Its not pleasant to have all the condescension from those who "know better".

Wow that is so offensive to short people.

On a sensible note. I see there are several people posting. "last long run done. time to taper and relax" Does any of them even know what a taper is? 3 weeks and and that's it then. just turn up on the start line.

 

You tend to get the same phrases cropping up whatever pace someone is.

But I have to ask, if someone is doing 25-30miles a week, and aiming for a marathon, what the heck are they tapering from exactly?

Interestingly the only person on here that we know for certain is an underachiever is DF3 himself. The psychology of this stuff isn't that hard to work out.

You will never be a winner. Being a "winner" is an attitude thing.

words fail me David.

at first i thought you weren't a real person, just someone put in by Runners world to stir things up a bit, but then i read that you were Australian, then it all made perfect sense.

I don't mean that in an offensive way.

All is explained now Ultra...probably has a tinny on the go as we speak, moaning about the flamin Galahs on the Brighton Thread to Screa...sorry his girlfriend...

I'm enjoying DF3s comments re the Brighton thread.  and I'm sure he's enjoying the indignantion of those who are so shrilly offended on behalf of those who could doubtless tell him to sling it themselves if they felt so inclinded.  great reading.

Bint on there now is talking about tapering (three weeks away) after being out injured for three weeks. Seems she thinks tapering involves eating her bodyweight in Hobnobs!!
