OhioNonSmoker: Maybe runners should get YOUR permission before going to this event? Anybody can go to this race. Last time I checked, this is a free country. Get over yourself. And you called runners the most self-absorbed bunch of tools. Maybe you forgot to look in the mirror.

To rgadzina and pahootaman, this is NOT the Boston Marathon we are talking about, this was a charity event to raise money. Think about it, rgadzina: could families and groups of walkers be at the FRONT of the all-important race? No, of course not - we were already at the back during the walk/race. I'm not talking about during the actual race/walk - I'm talking about on the city streets and sidewalks heading to the event, and in the parking lot before the event. If you are a runner and want to improve your time, go practice somewhere other than a crowded charity event.

Thankfully there was no walk/runathon for Jonas Salk or we would still be looking for a cure for polio.

OhioNonSmoker: Duh, they're runners. They run to improve their time. That's what they do, moron! Maybe people that aren't running should get to the back of the pack and not be at the front. ... thebear402: well said

Well this is a coincidence, we had something called "The Fox8 Fox Trot" in Cleveland. It was in support of traumatic brain injury. Both are worthy events!

I take part in a number of charity events throughout the year for a wide variety of causes. Yesterday was my first Panerathon - and last. It was an utter mess. Way too few volunteers/officials for the number of participants and virtually no organization. Runners have to be the most self-absorbed bunch of tools I have ever met - elbowing and pushing their ways past and through groups of people and families with strollers, while staring at their watches and timers. I may not have raised the most money, but next year it will be contributed elsewhere.

You will not find finer, more generous people than Mr and Mrs Covelli.
