Distance runners have to put in more work, that's just the nature of it. It's not an insult, it just quite literally requires more. I respect the hell out of hard working sprinters, but what could compare to a high level distance runner putting in 100 mpw? Just by the sheer time it takes up. Just because we all run doesn't mean everything has to be equal. Should we include throwers, jumpers, and vaulters into this conversation as well? Sinc we all compete in the sport of track and field?

WHY R U RAINING ON OUR LOVE PARADE

It is an insult.

Trying to justify that sprinters do not work as hard is an insult. There is no way you can tell me as a sprinter that I do not work as hard as any distance runner without me feeling insulted. Hard work has absolutely nothing to do with how far you  run or how much time it takes up. Sorry you feel that way though. I am completely aware of the fact that i will never ever ever ever want nor be able to run a mile under five minutes. I have no desire to put in 100 miles a week. But when the distance runners are dying at the end of there workouts puking and wishing they could walk away us sprinters are doing the same thing we hurt the same. Even if our workouts are different.

We do different work, we’re all aware of that. But no one should feel like their work is less important or less appreciated. 

As for field events they work just as hard as the runners coming from a former long jumper who QUIT because it was too hard & too frustrating. So trying to belittle their events is rude & uncalled for.

BOTTOM LINE

DISTANCE RUNNERS,SPRINTERS,FIELD EVENT(ERS?) ARE AWESOME AND CRAZY AND HARD WORKING AND TALENTED AND AMAZING AND THEY SHOULD BE LOVED AN RESPECTED. 

and that’s the last i’ll say about this.

Haven’t seen this post in a longg time. Still soooooo true. This girl was state champ indoor and has been working through some injuries and is coming back even stronger for this year. So watch out, sassy anons! That’s the hardest work if I’ve ever seen it!
