Fellowship of the runners

One thing thats great about distance running is the community. In the race you will notice some thrown elbows, some shoving, or even a little trash talk. But after the race everyone forgives and forgets, well for the most part! After the race a good 'ol high five or hug is not uncommon. And before the race a 'good luck' is passed around without thinking. Some of my best friends are also my greatest competitors. This has been proven several times when I see my own teammate Jonathon Hutchinson pass me in the last 200 meters in a race. When i thought i had nothing left he always seems to bring out my best.
