Running with the Worlds Best
What other sport allows us mere commoners to participate in the same exact event as a world elite record holder? None...except running. I have the ability to run in the same exact race, same starting line as the world's best athletes. We can run the same course, under the same conditions, under the same sun and finish in the same day (at least I hope so). I can say I ran in the same race as Kara Goucher or Ryan Hall. What other non-runner, non-elite athlete can ever say that? Its a great sport, isn't it?
