When sprinters say their events are harder than the distance runners

  • Me: Well let's see...
  • Me: The 100m dash is over before you start to feel pain.
  • Me: The 200m dash is 50m worth of pain.
  • Me: The 400m dash is 100m worth of pain.
  • Me: The 800m run is 300m worth of pain.
  • Me: The 1600m run is 800m worth of pain.
  • Me: And the 3200m run is 1600m worth of pain.
  • Me: Not to mention you can eat whatever you want hours before a race and not worry about puking during it.
  • Me: Or the fact that you can survive the meet without drinking water for a whole week before the meet.
  • Sprinters: Shut up.
  • Me: Exactly.
