ok ok ok i understand 13.1. but...
fuck all y'all for saying that running a marathon is not an achievement. I am a hardcore biker/runner and I have a ton of respect for people that can run over 26 miles, or essentially be running for... 3ish hours, no stopping.
they should deserve to show something they're proud of. I want to run a marathon someday, when I have the time to train that much. It's dedication. and damn it it's one of the hardest things to do.
why hate? Say you go to someone's house and they have a few trophies, like winning a championship or something. You don't just say "fuck you, nobody cares" (well maybe not). I, personally - and I know many newschoolers do too - like have something to show my achievements.
