Boston born and raised race director Dave McGillivray knows a thing or two about the cold.
Years ago when asked what I did for a living, I use to embarrassingly mumble, “I am a race director!” So, what the heck does a race director do? Put a chalk mark in the road and yell go?? Now I say, by producing all the events I do, I help raise the level of self-esteem and self-confidence of tens of thousands of people in America.
I'm a more recent member of your fandom and after learning a little about your history, I was very inspired but left wondering a few things. Everything you have accomplished, athletically and professionally, is really impressive. You've spent your life doing things that most people would never even attempt. Most people lack the courage and the drive.
I've seen races with Clydesdale categories. As an XL runner, I'd find it attractive to race against others in my weight category- I might win! But how does the racing community view this? Is it viewed like age categories? Or would I just be the "fastest of the fatties?" The name "Clydesdale" really doesn't help that image. Please share your thoughts.
