      That guy was a huge jerk. I agree with everything you said.

      Some people like to feel elitist, and talk smack about those that they are faster than, fitter than, or some other dimension of 'scoring.' I wholeheartedly disagree. I think anyone that wants to be at an event and is putting in effort belongs there.

      Thanks, Barb. I knew that I needed time off and am glad I took it, even though I love summer running. But, man, the next few weeks are going to be tough!
