Re: [RC] [RC] 100s discussion//defining endurance-marathons - Cindy Collins

OK, Beverley, this is done in good humor, but...let's play :)  
Cindy Collins, AERC #176
8,000+ miles, 19 completions on one day 100 milers
2 ultra marathons (50Ks)
4 marathons
2 10Ks

So, I think I have the right to an opinion on both endurance riding and
running.  I am a very slow, unathletic, and ungraceful runner, but I have
put my body where my mouth is.  In fact, I ran my first marathon because I
wanted to know what my horse was experiencing and being asked to do.  I
also have the right to believe that calling all distances "endurance" is
just the same as calling all running "marathons."  Once again, I have
mentored MANY new riders into this sport.  I have also encouraged many
riders to try their first 100 miler.  We are not arguing about the same
thing, I think.  Language does matter.  I made an A in high school
physics, but I'm not a physicist.  I honestly don't get this argument.
