Racial Profiling

Post  Jerry on Thu Sep 22, 2011 12:10 pm

So this morning in my 8 miles recovery run, I was complementing what distinguishes good and bad racers. I pictured runners on this board and came up with a shocking conclusion to share. Let's first look at examples:

Good racers: Dave B., Schuey, MrMatt, Randy, Jerry

Lousy racers: Dave-O, Chris, Nick Morris

See the differences?

The good racers are all bold!

So, you are profiling us by putting the good looking ones in the "lousy racers" category??

The hair slows us down. That's it.

I don't really understand the original post, though, although I suspect it was supposed to be a joke since Dave, Chris and Nick are all good racers and runners. Ah well. I don't understand humor sometimes.

So it is really "Folicle Profiling". If the implication is that I would have to look like Jerry to race well, I'm going to remain content with my underachieving ways. Besides, that lazy sack couldn't beat me now. He was fast back in the day but who remembers those old times of his?

Chris). They are all rockstars!!!

That is true Chris. We less folically challenged runners tend to focus on the future, not the past.

What about us with 1-2mm of hair? Does that make me a 50% racer? Because I tend to be really good in some and really not good in others.

I thought "racing" meant against the others on the course. So no, it couldn't have been. Cool

Oh, Jerry means time trialing....

For the record, your honor, Jerry recognizes Dave's debating technique though doesn't know the term in English.

Btw, Dave, did you win any prize money out of this one?

I've got a tape breaking picture as well. Granted, mine was from a half iron relay but does Jerry have a tape breaking picture? Has he ever beat all the other runners in a race?

But Chicago marathon does have records that show I beat all you three last year.
