Do you really think people are going to want to discuss Jeff Galloway products? You are turning this board into an ugly commercial experience that will only turn people off. The least you could do is be subtle about it. Yeesh.

And truth be told, the run walk thing is annoying. These people walk around telling everyone they have "run" a marathon, when in fact they haven't. Marathons aren't meant to be mainstream, they are supposed to be an impressive achievement that takes years to accomplish. Gallowalking has reduced the marathon to an 18 week adventure, instead of a life challenge.

I'm not a fan of this whole turn of events.

So these people should not say anything? Hmmmm.
Maybe they should check in with the marathon commisioner, is that you? Wow, before anyone is allowed to whisper that they "finished" a marathon they need to say it accordint a PC protocal according to a clown named TRADERDC?

As a former Marine who swore to defend and support the US Constitution, I take severe offense to people who would stifel or suggest they be muzzled in their "Freedom of Speech".

But then you might be from a tyrannical country, either way, to suggest that folks might not "speak" the unspeakable is offensive.

Marathons aren't meant to be mainstream,

So I guess you're above the mainstream? You're not on no pedestal. And if you were you'd be an easy target for people like me. If you're an elite runner then go and put together your own marathon with your qualifications. That way you would'ne be surrounded by the simpletons you call mainstream.

Get a life! Twerp!

These people should not be saying that they ran a marathon. Because they didn't run one, they gallo-walked one. If they said they finished one, there'd be no problem...but saying they ran a marathon when they clearly didn't is a problem.

I just love all you former marines who think you're a bunch of hardasses. "I fought to defend freedom of speech, blah blah blah." When was the last time that some foreign country invaded the United States threatening our freedom of speech? Oh that's right...there hasn't been one. You probably fought as a political pawn. You didn't do anything to better our country, you just went to some foreign land because our President said he wanted a military presence there to protect the United States from a 3rd world country that wasn't a threat to us at all.

I walked a little during a marathon when I bonked. I'm not a Gallowalker.

Please, if you're going to troll, do it right.

If I stop to use a port-a-potty, but I run in place while I take a leak and then run right back in to the race would I be a gallowalker?

Here's hoping that this awful attempt to shill ends up turning into a collection of nasty debates and CR is forced to either methodically and repeatedly delete all such posts or have these circular, vicious posts remain on what is clearly a paid forum.

Technically, I think the only way you could avoid being a gallowalker in such a circumstance is if you had "the runs" while in the port-a-potty.

Nit pick ... the name of the administrator, 'gallowayproductions', is so long that it has caused the table columns on the main "Discussion Forums" page to resize, taking space away from the column that has the forum description, making that page even longer than it already is, which is too long in the first place.

Trader didn't lose anything. As far as I'm concerned, there wasn't even a fight.

dg12 sounded ignorant in his post, he clearly doesn't have reading comprehension skills. Trader had no problem with people saying they finished a marathon, only those who say they ran it despite walking close to 4 or 5 miles of it.

I have problems with people like dg12 who act like they are above everyone because they were in the military. He didn't fight anybody who was threatening to take away from our constitutional rights, so why make it seem that way?

Recently, the "wars" we've been involved in have been fighting groups who were not threatening our constitution. The closest it's come has been with the war on terror, which I support.

Congratulations, you're in the military. I was in ROTC for a semester, I hated every minute of it...not just because it was an excess stress on me because I have an anxiety disorder; but because most of the people in it were so far to the right that they were blindly following Bush. They had no objectivity.

Not only a bad trolling attempt, but this writing style is sneakily like she-who-shall-not-be-named.

Anyway, I walked a little yesterday in the SFO marathon. I was doubled over in pain from stomach cramps. I was not then and have never been a Gallowalker. BUT... as far as I'm concerned, as long as someone doesn't come to a dead stop right in front of me while I'm running, I couldn't care less if she/he walks, runwalks, or moonwalks to the finish line.

If the goal of "racing" is to cross the finish line in as short a time as possible, then using walking breaks can be an effective strategy for those who have a relatively light training base.

While I'm not sure about all of Galloway's claims, the use of walking breaks definitely has its place ... and remember Galloway is not the only "expert" to recommend walking breaks ... although his claims might get him all the attention.

It probably depends on the number of young boys at the finish line.

Sir, I don't know in what sense you use the term "invade", but it seems to me that you had your head either buried in the sand or up your arse on September 11th, 2001. As for preserving our freedoms, it seems we have fewer of them since that day.

And a great first post it is!

Side note: Why slam a marine for the administration's issues? The marine was still out there, risking his life. It's not his fault, his decision or his choice if he's out there for a stupid president's reasons. Risking a life is risking a life.

Another side note: This sounds like the debate over running vs. jogging. Why do you care so much? Do what you do, call it what you want and get out of other people's business . If I ran 20 miles and walked 6, I would sure as heck call it "running" a marathon, and if you have a problem with it, c'mon over and knock me down. Otherwise, be secure and confident in your abilities and accomplishments, recognize that people view issues and actions and achievements differently, and get out middle school....
