Update: Marathon Winner is a Winner

So, Nike decided to award her a prize after all. Read more.

I really don't have much to add, but good for NIKE. In the end everyone can go happy!

Your blog kicks ass...I am so behind. I need to learn this stuff.

Aww, thanks, but this is 4 years in the making and I still probably have a long way to go.

I think this was the right thing to do. I understand the general reasoning for not wanting runners to start in the pack and try to win it from there (although arguably she was at as much of a disadvantage not knowing where the runners ahead of her were, either) - but it still seems a bit unfair to have a race and disqualify 90 percent of the field at the start. Nike did right. Good for her.

It would be nice, at least, for all races to be like Baltimore, where the non-elite athletes were given a prize as well. So, if you start with the non-elite runners, it would make sense to be recognized. I don't understand the logic of NOT doing that, to be honest. Especially with sponsorship like Nike, who can certainly afford it.
