Marathon Organizers Warn Runners of Intense Heat

Discussion A
1) In your opinion, how does temperature affect the performance of athletes like marathon runners?
Now I need to talk just out of my sheer imagination because I’ve never run a marathon in my life. I guess that the heat and high temperature will deprive runners from stamina to sustain themselves for 42.195 kilos. Less experienced runners might have hard time allocating their limited energy and stamina during a race. Even runners with experiences will have to slow down their pace and try not to consume too much of their stamina under the heat. Also runners will need to take more water than on cooler days, which will end up wearing them down.

2) Would you join a marathon in your country if it were held in the middle of summer? Why? / Why not?
I’d never want to join a marathon in the mid-summer, knowing it will risk my life. If someone I know is running a marathon race under such climate, I’d be worried if they survive a tough heat, seriously.

Discussion B
3) Is there a sport or activity that you sometimes enjoy doing even though you have little experience of it?
What came up to my mind instantly is bowling. I’ve never intensively practice bowling and have always been a clumsy, poor player. Still I enjoy games with my buddies from time to time. I’d say sharing excitement among friends is the best part of bowling.

4) Do you think people should give up a sport or other activity they like because others advise them to stop? Why or why not?
Well, I think everything’s up to the individual who does the activity. Even a doctor cannot stop his patient from loving and doing supposedly undesirable activities for them. There’s always a person who’d rather do whatever he/she likes to do while harming and risking their lives, such as those who could possibly quit smoking. Being engaged in your favorite activities can grace your lives beautifully and excitingly. Except the case in which quite obvious risks are posed, we should be 100% responsible for our choices on sports and activities we’d do while “considering suggestions” from people around us.
