Is it wrong to hate a certain race?

I don't mind doing a 5k but my running group is thinking of joining a 10k and I really don't like that idea.

mosslegs, I'm not going to lie when I first read this question I thought I was going to have to open a can of "whoop-ass". Shoo. Okay, I think it's fine to hate certain races. I myself have done several 5ks, but can't even fathom doing double that. I know I could do it, but that doesn't mean I'll like it. If you put your two cents in, will they listen to you?

Maybe, they might do. And thanks for the first reaction.

That's exactly the reaction moss was aiming for, I'm sure, CJ. It was stealth trolling.

Lol, moss admitted it, so yes it was. :)

Yup, that's about right ;)

Trust me, a 10k is nothing! It's a breeze so don't sweat it. Just make sure you have good, worn-in shoes. I got a massive blister when I did a 10k last year with my new shoes :(. Anyway I'm sure you'll be fine. It is harder, true, but stay positive and you'll be alright.

If you hate the 10k then you might as well go live in South Africa in the 1950's where they wouldn't allow longer races.

It's supposed to make people do a double take, the actual question wasn't serious at all it's just to see what people say
