http://runitfast.com/2011/12/06/rea...elin-finishes-rock-n-roll-las-vegas-marathon/ This kind of stuff really pisses me off. Regardless of whether you run a marathon in 2:15 or 7 hours, you invest countless hours into the training. Your feet hit every mile of that course, and finishing under your own power and getting that finisher's medal is definitely a singular moment. The part where the 'celebrity' runner gets the accolades and the real runners don't boils the blood. How there was even enough room on the course or sidelines to have a scooter is beyond me too. My understanding is that most of the race was overcrowded, dangerously so in many places.
