as concise as I can get. I got a call from an RD in another state that wanted to get a few quotes from me for an article with his local running club. “My” running club seems to jump through hoops to avoid an acknowledgement of winning their race.
Joel, if I put this together correctly, Sue won “her” club's race and they are doing everything possible to acknowledge that. Meanwhile, someone from an out of state club is calling her, presumably as the winner of the race, in order to get a quote for presumably his running club's newsletter.
Sue, congrats on winning. If that was Fox Cities you're referring to, very impressive run. Too bad “your” club doesn't recognize (or at least acknowledge) that fact.
Agree with the others, solid performance if it is yours. Seems like it is time that either someone in the club leadership steps forward with an apology and explanation or you part ways with a group that seemingly does little at all for you. It is due to situations such as this that I am glad to remain, as Ulysses E. McGill put it, unaffiliated. :-[
