Excuse me? If it it so personal you should not be posting it online. If you don't like racing that is fine, it is not a requirement for anyone. But don't complain that other racers are too fast. All I was saying is that before people say "I'm too slow", they should get out and watch a local race or two. I'm not talking the Boston Marathon, I'm talking your local fun runs. And I am a little surprised that they run races on major hills there. I live in Hill Country and most races around here are run on pretty flat land.
