    Interesting comments. 3.1 or 31.1- to us long distance runners, I guess it seems silly to put it on, but it must mean something for that person.....good food for thought.

    And who's to say this person hasn't "earned" this sticker? Maybe they've lost 200 pounds and this run was their goal. Or an amputee that was told they'd never run again. Or maybe they ran a 14:59 5k.

    I applaud any celebration of a running achievement. Just because i can run long distances doesn't mean my accomplishments are better or more difficult than someone else's.

    I agree with you too Jeff. Perhaps the 3.1 sticker needs to be replaced with " I beat Cancer" or "I lost a leg". I think that would get the message across a little better. No?

    I'd rather people ask me what 26.2 or 50k or 3.1 means - I want people to be excited about running, or riding, or whatever. But clearly this person ran a 5k as a statement for something that they are proud of for whatever reason. I have no idea why they are proud but I'm glad they are!

    I like your comments - I agree with you both -- if that's possible! I think it funny. I've run 9 marathons, but I would put a 3.1 sticker on my car before I would put a 26.2 one - just for fun. I'm not much on "labels".

    @Don - I might put a 3.1 on my car if I'd just run that far in 95 degree weather too!
