Marathon Adds VIP Porta Potties
I always thought there was a wonderful democracy to marathon bathroom breaks: you could be a mayor or a hedge fund manager or a cheese buyer or a blogger, but when the time came, you would run to some woody patch and turn your back to the crowd and the mass of runners and the prying journalistic eyes, and do what you needed to do, and then get back on the course.
But now? The class war has come to marathon running, and specifically to this fall's Marine Corps Marathon. The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer, and the privileged class gets climate controlled porta potties with fragrance dispensers, oak vanities and flushing toilets.
So now there's Main Street, and there's Wall Street, and there's P Street, and their interests just do not intersect. Not with partitioned stalls, they don't. As one running commenter put it, "Glad they didn't have this last year....I may never have left!"
