As a society, we westerners are spoiled and really don't consider all the consequences of all our actions, we want to believe that we're rugged individualists and any action can be justified if it serves to get us ahead. Win at all costs, in a sense. This very well could be an era of decline for western civilization — but I digress.
I agree with GTF the “it’s all about me” attitude = ruinous.
In a race I would never carry any music device with me. I just hope that (since I am a middle pack runner) those around me can hear me. I know I can get loud enough but I do not want to expend that energy or get frustrated and throw my game.
Yes I like to run with music on rare occasions but only on a treadmil or alone on the Ozaukee County interurban trail.
