I came into work this morning still buzzing from the VLM yesterday, I finished in a time of 5.32, which I know is slow, but I ran the whole way without stopping or walking despite starting to get tired at mile 14, which is a massive achievement for me. I also beat my PB from last year by 15 minutes.
No sooner had I said my time, someone said (joking, but still) that they could have walked it faster. He was swiftly told where to go and reminded that the ballot opens on Monday, so why not have a go.
But why do people think this comment is funny or even necessary? It's probably a throw-away comment but even so, it's really ruined my good mood, something I had to slog my guts out for over 26.2 miles and 5 and a half hours.
