The winner of the 2014 Med City Half Marathon was Mark Bolster, coming in at a speedy 1:15:51. His speed doesn’t concern me. The fact that I will never be that fast does not bother me at all. In fact, I am pretty proud to have completed in less than double his time.
There is no doubt in my mind that marathon runners are awesome.
The physical stamina and mental determination needed to accomplish such a thing easily qualify a person as very seriously awesome.Even the slowest marathon runners gain a sort of amazing glow in the eyes of lesser men such as myself.
