  • I'm disapointed, at that moment he was representing us runners on the world stage and he let us down:

    What utter nonsense.

    A runner is a runner, it doesn't matter about your speed or distance, it's about the passion you have for running.

    Well, that's a new factor all together.

    Because if you only run once a week, surely you don't have the same passion as someone who runs twice a week etc.

    So what level of passion makes you become a runner?

  • Does it really matters what others think? Do we need validation from others in order to call ourselves runners?



    I personally don't consider myself a runner (did years ago before giving it up for 20+ years) but someone who runs. However I have no idea what will make me a runner but doubt it will be anything to do with time. Maybe when my first toenail falls off!



    Whatever I feel it is up to me and no-one else to give myself that label.
