Is it wrong trying to compete with people in races? with any initiative to beat them.

Nothing wrong with being super competitive as long as you give other people the respect they deserve and observe good race etiquette. Oh, and don't get a ahead of yourselves in how good you think you are, there's always someone better than you.

Wrong? In what way? Isn't competitiveness the whole point of a race?

Without being particularly fast, I'm super-competitive when participating in events. I don't see anything wrong with it at all, quite the opposite really. I agree with Dylan - as long as good race etiquette and good manners are observed then it's fine.

I'd always stop to help someone in trouble though. A friend and I once stopped halfway through a trail marathon and got out the first aid kit to patch up a lady who had fallen off her bike. And if the person I was racing to the finish line fell over, I'd stop and help them up rather than run off and leave them.

well in a running event this person would say how i would make him run faster and faster ...is not that the whole point of competing, or did i do something wrong

I enjoy competing, especially if I have seen them several times before....

However I always shake their hand if they beat me again!!! Lol ;-D

odd thread

The operative word is 'race'......

Every thread by TD34 is odd. I'm not sure that he/she isn't just a wind up merchant. What will tomorrow's odd question be? Is sweating acceptible? Will shaving my balls make me faster?
