    WSJ writer is tired of runners being all up in his face about running:


    What's with this infatuation with running and the near-mandatory ritual of preening about it?

    Probably vegan, too.

    OK. So you got some sneakers.

    That don't impress me much.

    The 13.1 and 26.2 stickers are stupid and vapid.

    Everything else in that column is garbage.

    I bet Chad Stafko is out of shape. Most of us are predisposed to not liking people or things that remind us about how we probably should be living.

    For example, smart, sober, friendly people annoy the crap out of me.

    Legislate your own morality.
    Worry about your own mortality.
    We'll both be food for worms in 100 years.
    Same thing goes for the aggressive vegetarianism.

    Running a marathon is a hell of a feat. I have no problem with people being proud by putting the 26.2 sticker on their car. Hell, I'm impressed.

    I think it's silly to have the 13.1 sticker.

    I have friends who run ultramarathons. They just finished a 100K (62 miles).

    They ran for 13 hours straight.

    I can't even sit on the couch and watch TV for 13 hours straight.
