Marathon: What an unequal race...

Published:

Last Edited: March 22, 2008, 6:18 pm

Marathon: Who do you think really wins in a marathon? Women....Look i am sorry to sound this cruel but women should run on different marathon than men...The marathons were measure according to male standards, not to female standards...And they pitch women and men equally on a marathon like they were equals...Can a woman do the same push ups that a man can? nope, this is why women should have their own marathon, and men should have theirs...Because is not an equal race, you are pitching someone running with a sand bag and someone without a sandbag...It is not the same...And if you are going to pitch both of them together at least shorten the distance, because it is not the same...Unless you are training them for the military or something...

This reminds me of a soccer game...Suppose Argentina plays against colombia and Argentina has 11 members playing for them and Colombia has 9 players and the game ends 2-0 in favor of Argentina...Who really won, Argentina or Colombia..."Think again"....

And i know a lot of you are thinking, oh this will strengthen women's character...and my answer to you is" Ohh really" and suppose you have a marathon with men and females and a women wins and she wins several marathon...What happens 10 years after that year...Is that same female who won several marathon running? NOpe and worse she is very fat, because is harder for women to lose weight than men, and metabolism slows down with age....And what happened to all the females that were runing on the same marathon who didn't win...What happens to them 10 years later? the same, even if that 1 female who won several marathon is still running the rest are not....And what you want to encourage is an environment of confidence so that women will continue running in the future and love the sport...That's why you should pitch women with women and men with men....

for it to be an equal race men will have to be fat/overweight....

And i rather see a womn and a group of women run a marathon of less miles and continue running 10 years later and 20 years later, than to see 1 star women run a marathon, win 2 years later get scared and 10 years later don't even walk as exercise....

And i rather see a woman and a group of women run a marathon of less miles and gain confidence and continue running 10 years later and 20 years later, than to see 1 star women run a marathon, win; 2 years later get scared and 10 years later don't even walk as exercise....

And when people tell you winning is everything on a race: is not, actually you win and will continue to win if 5 years later or 10 years later you continue to run...

And you will continue to win if you have kept the same weight you had when you first ran that marathon or you continue to be slim...

Sweetie, you really should do a little research before you write this stuff. There is always a separate women's division. Example, look at the last Boston Marathon.
