    I know I would have kept running.  Does that make me bad?

     

    Either way, this was some pretty impressive sportsmanship.  Also, I like how the officials did not DQ her for helping out a runner.

     

    In WI they would have disqualified her, but that's just how the WIAA rolls around these parts.

      I have to be honest.  She gave up 14th place in a 15 person race.  She didn't pull a soldier up the beach at Normandy. 

       

      And I'm not sure that dragging her was the correct thing to do for her health.  I don't know where the coaches were but if the girl could not stand on her own I probably would have just run out there to help her. 

       

      And I think there was no reason to DQ.  There was nobody else affected by the outcome as they were in last.

                    Disagree.  Possibly the worst stomach ache of my life was DQ-inspired.  In Texas, no less.  Traveling cross country, my mom cashed in a bunch of coupons at a DQ - burgers, fries, ice cream - in ridiculous Texas heat.  Ugh!  Probably didn't help I was riding cargo in the Toyota Corolla Hatchback.  Good times.  David Sedaris and I should hang out.

                      Your mistake was front loading with the Hungerbuster and fries.  Just the blizzard.  Goodness.

                       

                      Blizzard made with the dip cone chocolate?  Oh my.

                            That was a funny article.
