Reddit and Believed It

You may have heard by now, but my youngest brother is basically an Internet sensation. I mean I can see why. He is pretty great (except for the time he pretended to slam the restaurant door on me when we went for food post marathon). 

First it starts with some local media coverage.

Then it goes viral online, somewhat obscurely.

Then it gets more attention and is featured in more mainstream media.

After briefly reading the online responses, I've grabbed a screenshot of my favorite take away:

Isn't a marathon a reasonable thing to post about on facebook? It's a big personal accomplishment. If you're sharing anything personal beyond contact information, I'd imagine that should be pretty high up on the list.

As a person who finished his first marathon this year, I'm wondering why OP is so butt hurt about people posting about it on facebook.

Seriously - I made one post about my marathon this year and was lambasted as being arrogant, a jerk, etc. So I just went with it and really rubbed the salt in by mentioning my girlfriend. Thought Reddit was about to explode in fury.

You accomplished something besides sitting around looking at cat pictures all day, no wonder you were ostracized.

Their butthurt makes you stronger, their tears are salty ambrosia.
