There is a marathon in my city today. I see on the television when they are almost to my house and then walk out onto the balcony to watch them run by IRL. I can’t know for sure who will win, but I am fairly certain it will be a man, not a woman and that the man will almost certainly be from Kenya. I feel comfortable knowing that I didn’t waste my time participating. I am not much of a man, nor an elite runner, nor am I from Kenya.
