Right from the start I want to acknowledge that I have plenty of “hey look at me!” in me. I have a blog after all, the one you are currently reading, which is for the most part about me. Who doesn’t want to standout from the crowd in their own way? No one longs to be one of the shuffling masses.
With that in mind, I pose this question. Does any other sport/activity have the equivalent of the car mileage sticker?
Are there people in beer softball leagues with “.348 avg” stickers? What about “14.2 ppg” stickers for guys who play pickup basketball? Do avid fisherman have “6 LBS Large Mouth” stickers?
What is it about running in particular that makes us want to scream out “HEY LOOK WHAT I DID!!!”?
