alaric, then maybe you should read all the posts. I'm assuming you started reading after it spiraled out of control?
I would only call you a pansy if you never played any sport in your life, then entered a ToughMudder & posted pics & vids for the world to see. Telling everyone you were a hardcore extreme athlete. I would say it right to your face, without hesitation.
That's what I have a problem with. Would you not agree?
Honestly? No, I don't agree.
Many people are not in shape. It's a shitty fact, but it's a fact. If someone who is not the most active person completes it and wants to brag about it, good for them! It shows that they want to better themselves and I'm definitely okay with that.
If they want to say it was extreme, things like that then that's okay. For them it very well may have been extreme, while for you and I it's just another run.
If they start to say "I'm badass and you're not" or shit like that, then yeah, I'll call ANYONE out. If Derek Jeter came up to me and said "I'm amazing and you suck" I'd call him out in the fact that I could beat him in a 100m sprint but he'd beat me in a HR competition.
But as I said, if someone wants to call the toughmudder extreme and brag about it a bit, I've got no problem with that as long as they don't degrade other people in the process.
