The race is over, put it away until next year. Tired of hearing about it. Yesterdays OD was a waste of paper no news just stupid boiler race crap. Not everyone is interested in this race. New York Marathon or the Boston Marathon do not carry on like this area does about a race and a bunch of beer drinking drunks.

I think it's pretty shabby that the runners did not receive something more substantial for the lunch. The volunteers received bagels and all sorts of other things. They were standing around pointing out directions chomping on bagels and cream cheese while we runners had some string cheese and granola. The runners ran and needed more sustenance. I ran and was very surprised. It's not a big deal, but given the runners pay to run and actually exert themselves, it would be nice to get something to replenish our bodies at the close of the race.

As for the virtual goodie bag. It was a joke. A bunch of coupons. Stupid.

Maybe you were not the right color. I do not think it is fair for the elite runners get get rewarded with money and the area runners get nothing.White Americans are becoming second class citizens.

And they have nobody to blame but themselves given their liberal attitudes.

I went to the massage tent after the 5k, everyone standing around talking with their heads up their azzez. They said they would not help anyone until the 15k runners came in and then maybe some of the 5k. I use to run the 15k and just got back into running. I pulled my hamstring and decided to try a massage therapist. I fell like a million now and will continue to go.They lost my business. If you want to stand around and bull shit do it somewhere other than the front of the tent. They should be there to help everyone or not at all. The moron lost my business.
