Those ads always bugged me. How could people sell what I hold so dear. But if someone runs Boston every year and has no problem qualifying [unlike most] then the medals may not mean much. I most be sentimenatal because I’ve kept every race number since the early 80’s.
But the ads that really irk me are those that sell their race numbers or those looking for a race number to get into the race. I say train like everyone else! If everyone was supposed to participate than they would have the standards in place.
