    This guy states that part of the reason our elite runners have not been able to compete with the Kenyans and other countries' best is that the marathon is no longer an elitist event. Maybe it's a little too inclusive.

    She is making it easier for pedophiles to sexually assault teenage girls though. Well she was until one of them got caught anyway.

    So it's OK for sexual assaults to take place as long as you provide the funds for the building in which they take place?

    Thanks for clearing that up, lil Chuckie.

    I don't think that's what Chuck's saying, and you guys know that.

    Marathons might be more inclusive, but they're still hard as hell. I mocked Katie for her time -- more than five hours -- but give her plenty of credit for finishing.

    And don't forget Al Gore and George W. have run them, as well.

    Sorry but that's what I got out of it. all I got out of it was lil' Chuckie's usual hero worship.
