Milo Marathon Controversy

There are a lot of Blog posts about the recent Milo Marathon controversy, you can find the details at this blog http://lifeisahighway91.blogspot.com/2010/07/fly-in-ointment-dishonesty-at-milo.html

We fully support what was said in this post, specially this Quote from Life is a Highway:

“Now, you may be asking why I am making such a big deal out of all of this. Well, I’ll tell you why.

I’m doing this because, after months of busting my knees and training for this marathon, after almost collapsing due to dehydration and heat exhaustion during the last eight kilometers, I chose to stay the course and somehow managed to finish the race with my integrity intact.

I’m doing this because of fellow runners like Jet Paiso, who got injured during the marathon yet chose to carry on and finished what he started, even if it meant taking all of SEVEN hours to complete the damn thing and crossing the finish line long after the cheering crowds have left.

I’m doing this because I personally witnessed an old, bent, and shabby-looking runner, evidently bereft of material advantages in life, almost crawling to the finish line wearing only one tattered shoe (it wasn’t even a running shoe!) while carrying the other one in his hand, because it apparently lost its sole during the run.

I’m doing this because, somewhere along Kilometer 25, I and another runner attended to an old and battle-scarred marathoner who collapsed in the heat of the late morning sun, and stayed with him until help arrived.

I’m doing this because I’ve just learned that a 21k runner collapsed as he was only a kilometer away from finishing the race, and was then rushed to the hospital where he remained unconscious until he passed away yesterday due to multiple organ failure. May his soul rest in peace.

I’m doing this because, by their acts of dishonesty and lack of integrity, these “finishers” are making a mockery of all the ideals that the sport of running is supposed to instill in all of us.”
