Stafko: OK, You're a Runner. Get Over It -

There is only one reason running aficionados display the stickers. They want the rest of us to know about their long-distance feats. So let me be the first to offer my hearty congratulations. I'd even offer to give them a pat on the back—once they're done doing it themselves.

Mr. Stafko,

Why would you criticize runners or discourage exercise, no matter how vain you think it is.

I'm a doc and policy maker (State Senate health chair) and shouldn't have to remind you how desperately we need to fight obesity, diabetes and the $400B these two essentially preventable diseases cost America.

I hope your next piece is more sensible and productive.

We all need to work together on matters like this.
