I was disgusted to see so many runners take boxes of food away after the
half marathon at the Seattle Half/Full this past weekend, esp with
thousands of runners still not finished in both the half and the full. If
someone needs the recovery snacks that badly, I would suggest the many
Social Services available, and to skip spending money running the race. If
people feel they deserve the extra snacks due to the high cost of the race
fee, I would suggest taking the time to see how the entry fees are
actually used.

Bottom Line, I would ask the race organizers hand out bags of prepared
food at the finish line, rather than having large tables where people can
be selfish and behave with no class.
