What a gracious thing to say. For the record I welcome the LA Marathon. Everyone is entitled to their opinion however, when you call these people most of whom train for this race, plan for this race and make sacrifices for this race "fools" I think that is very unkind.

Obvious "Born in L.A." has no life and can waste one of the only TWO days the working class has off to wait around for streets to open. HAHA "train for this race...and make sacrifices" Please. The truth is-- something like this should NOT interrupt traffic and everyone else's lives. There are sidewalks that you can run on, closing down these MAIN roads is insane. Or, how about they run in the middle of the night when there is NO TRAFFIC? Hmm...

You people are disgusting. People come from all over the world to run in our Marathon and you are all so self-absorbed that you can't be bothered with it. So what if streets are closed off for a few hours. The pro runners are top athletes. And for all the others, it is a major accomplishment that takes a lot of training to complete a marathon course. So...to all you whiners, take alternate courses or just stay home and find other things to do for this ONE DAY A YEAR and shut up.

Drewry looks forward to doing a marathon in California someday. Training for marathons require good solid nutrition, proper supplementation, and lots of cardio, preferrably on an empty stomach! http://www.drewrynewsnetwork.com/f6/todays-featured-healthy-meal-day-3094.html
