Letsrun.com is a running website with a robust forum community. Imagine my suprise to find Honnold's free solo as a trending topic on the forum. Why don't climbers care about Kipchoge's amazing marathon WR?

I think climbing is fun. Sometimes when I say I'm going for a run, it's mostly climbing. I live in an easy place for that to happen.

What makes you think they don’t? Nearly everyone I climb with also runs. Kipchoge’s running has been an inspiration to me for years.

Because running is dumb. What are they running away from anyway?

Running is for prey.

The sub 2 Nike show was spectacular.

Have you spent much time on the MP forums? Do you think it is a good reflection of what the climbing community thinks? Do you really? REALLY?

Yikes, thought you all would enjoy reading a bunch of running dorks argue about climbing. I guess since an MP search for "sex and beer" gives only 50 results I know that MP searches are a flawed method to measure climber interests. Thanks for setting me straight guys.
