I’m a selfish jerk

I’m a selfish jerk

It was recently pointed out to me (not for the first time), by someone I live with but who shall remain nameless (hint: it’s the potty trained one), that when it comes to this website I can be a bit selfish.  I tend to focus on me more than team when expounding on running accomplishments.  Case in point was my recent post 2012 in Review, where 5 of the top 10 Most Awesome things were specifically about me (6 if you count the corporate challenge).  My first response (entirely in my head of course) was so what it’s my website it should be all about me, I’m going to go and change the post so all 10 are about how awesome I am.  After giving it a bit more thought however I have decided to graciously point out the many wonderful individual accomplishments of the rest of the team.

Finally I want to mention 2 guys who bring so much to Roadkill Racing and to the Rochester running community at large.  Tim Matthews & Tom Pampalone are out come rain or shine, wind and snow, small race or large, taking pictures of us fools.  They generously give of their time and talents, without them this site would not be half of what it is.  They make all of their photos available for free at Runners Pics.  Thank you both for all you do.
