Hi Julia,

I didn’t intend for the excerpts of your comments to misrepresent your entire comment. I did read your comment (and everyone else’s) in entirety more than once.

I definitely thought that you, as most folks, would consider a marathon extreme. And yes, I recognize that you do support people who push their bodies. I have read your articles about moving heavy logs and the joys of physical labor.

When I am talking about gloating, it is in reference to David’s original premise that people performing at that level are making a point of publicizing it in some way or lording it over others. I really don’t think that’s so.
