Are the Boston marathoners right to complain about not finishing their race?

Yes, they "trained" for the "26.2" for a long time

No, their lack of concern for victims is appalling

The more I see these marathon runners on the TV, the more I'm convinced that many of them are fools.

They seem more upset about the race ending than about all the people that got hurt.

I don't like their selfish attitude.

Marathoners are all liberals and believe they are entitled. I'm sure Obama is behind this.

Marathoners train constantly for those races. I can see why they would be disappointed for not being able to finish, especially now that the little bomber bastards got what they had coming.

One thing is certain, next year's Boston Marathon is going to be one incredible event!

I, like most people, have been watching the news a lot lately. But have yet to hear any thing about any of the runners complain about not finishing the marathon.

Those runners should be ashamed. I think they are just focused entirely on themselves and not on those who were killed or injured. They are basically the same people who plaster their windshields with those 26.2 stickers so that they can shove their little achievement in everyone's faces. Well guess what? No one cares. Running isn't even a real sport anyway. I can't think of anything more boring than watching a bunch of people run.

I'm sick of these whiny marathon people. They need to get over themselves

Boo-hoo, so you couldn't finish your run. Big deal. At least be grateful you are alive.

Show some humanity for the victims and stop being so full of yourselves.
