Runner's World Problems (Part 1 Of A ? Part Series)

So as most (all?) of this blog's readers know, I'm interning with the a marathon this spring; as most of you don't know, we ran a few hundred short of medals, race t-shirts, and our pre-race gifts. As such, we (justifiably) received some complaints. Despite the complaints' justifiability, not getting a $5 medal, $6 tech shirt, or $7 backpack after being wealthy enough to shell out around $100 for race entry; healthy enough to run either 13.1 or 26.2 miles; lucky enough to do so on a gorgeous day when near-freezing temperatures, rain, and high winds were predicted; and to be able to do all of it on the roads (many of them major thoroughfares) of a metropolitan area (over 1.5 million people) that have been closed for hours at some inconvenience to the general population purely for the entirely esoteric purpose of allowing 13,000 people with Vaseline rubbed on their inner thighs and nipples to run around in short shorts (only to finish up just eight blocks away from where they started) is the FUCKING DEFINITION of a first world problem. Man, FWPs
