Most of my race recaps as of late are essentially reviews of the event itself.
I am no elite runner, but I can certainly hold my own with what I consider decent race times and pace averages. Yet, the WSJ article still felt like a slap in the face. “Just finishing” is such an incredibly relative term, it amazes me that someone could use it in such an insulting manner.
