Its easier to be a bigger person when you're not giving up an award to do it. If I was faster I probably wouldn't be surrounded by so many catastrophes. LOL.
I hope I am never faced with that decision, is it bad that I don't know what I would do? It's refreshing that you have a good perspective on it though.
Congrats on a great weekend, you eat races like some people eat donuts!
MRT: This too shall pass
Congrats, two great races back to back! I was barely walking the day after my half. Very nicely done!

Your half time is also 5 minutes faster than mine. I wouldn't be walking after a 1:56 either!
