Dear Misfit Runners–
I am utterly and completely disappointed in your group of people. In January, I was a victim of cyber bullying from this group. The reason, SF and SR decided that I was faking cancer– I don’t know why they decided that I had faked this condition, or how they came to this conclusion. They berated me very publicly to friends I had for years. I was ostracized, and treated horribly. I left the group without defending myself.
I learned that there were other victims of this group– male and female. Another runner who on journey to lose 400 pounds was told he was an attention monger. Another runner was told that she faked her finish line pictures in the New York City Marathon (and was also accused of faking her ailments as well). Just yesterday, they attacked a mother, and her teenaged daughter.
The perpetrators of this behavior are not teenagers, they are not even children, they are 20-30-40-year old grown ass women. And it’s despicable. It is so wrong to troll other adults, but extending that trolling to minor children is pathetic. I hope the people who are doing this read this, and know that you are utterly, and completely pathetic. I felt sorry for you when you attacked me, because I thought there was seriously wrong with your self-esteem to go after adults, but a child– there is absolutely, positively NO excuse. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You are disgusting human beings.
P.S. Just so you know– I kicked cancers butt. I’m now done with chemo. The picture above was taken today. The only evidence of cancer is my really short hair cut.
