iPods now being allowed at Dallas marathon

 

I thought this was interesting, from the Dallas White Rock Marathon website:

 

 

 

 

 

iPod Policy Relaxed Based on Runner Input

iPods and Audio Devices No Longer Prohibited

 

 

!http://community.active.com/!Based on runner input, we have updated the guidelines on iPods and other audio devices and will no longer prohibit them. Since our course is a closed course during the term of the event, wearing an iPod WILL NOT result in disqualification in and by itself. If wearing an iPod or audio device results in you not hearing or obeying race instructions, you could be disqualified. We expect all participants to use good judgment and take responsibility for their actions should they wear an iPod or similar device during the race. We do ask that all participants be able to hear last minute instructions both at the start and finish lines, and that the ear buds be removed at these locations.

 

 

 

 

 

Hope everyone's having great July 4th races this morning!

    That makes perfect sense to me.





    Dig deep, people, you can do it!

    I agree.  I just think this goes to show, Texans have more sense than anyone else in the country.

     

     

     

     

     

    Let's not get carried away. . .  this was one race director. 

     

    Although I'm beginning to think I'll start ignoring the policy myself.  I think the later miles will be easier to pass when I can run to the beat of my favorite Lawrence Welk tune. . .

    You'll need to carry a bubble machine too, Jerry.

    That could become a bit difficult around mile ... um... 1.  Dang it.

    They make little plastic bubble blowing guns. Not nearly as cumbersome to carry! No bigger than a squirt gun!

    Does this mean you're not comfortable in your manhood? Jimmy is.

     

     

    Jimmy's comfortable in Jerry's manhood???

    There's always those Navy guys. . . 

     

    Jimmy had better not be comfortable anywhere near my manhood, thank you very much.

    LOL.  Hmmm...

     

     

     

     

     

    BTW, I don't think any Navy guys have the balls to mess with someone wearing a Marine shirt.  Even if you don't deserve it

     

     

     

    Hey... I'm a MC contractor. . . I'll just add "merc" to the bottom.    (That means I get A/C, hot food, and shorter shifts or paid for the extra hours.)
