Stung by the rather harsh criticism of Miss-G- by the erstwhile DrLith, I did some googling to find a little more about the persona behind the acid tongue and, surprise, surprise, found that alt.support.divorce seems to be a second home for many from rec.running. Which leads me to think...are many of you running for psychological reasons rather than for fitness or competition? Now, I'm not suggesting that this is A. Bad. Thing., merely that it puts a different slant on many of your posts to rec.running. If you're arriving here with your fragile egos fit to burst from the stress of life's inequities, I can well understand how my posts may cause you to become the grumpy and bitter souls you appear to be. Alternatively, you could be sheltering on alt.support.divorce precisely because you *are* grumpy and bitter souls, with whom no sane person would share a marital bed. This rather begs the question, "Are some people predestined for divorce by virtue of their basically horrid personalities?", which in itself leads to the question, "Are some people predestined to be runners by virtue of their inability to sustain a successful marital relationship?" Makes you think, dunnit?
