What are your thoughts on men running women's races?
The Wall Street Journal recently published an article about men running races intended for women. My initial reaction was to be really irritated—there are thousands if not hundreds of thousands of road races that are open to both sexes, so why do men feel the need to show up to these, upstage women, and ruin the tone of the race?
On the other hand, if the situation was reversed (women running men’s races), as was the case when women first began competing in marathons, I would be all for it. So I find myself with a pretty serious double standard. What do you think?
