As long as you're in decent condition, it doesn't really matter about your weight. Generally, though, the lighter the better(the less weight you have to carry around when you're out jamming).

Strength to weight ratio or endurance is really all that matters. The weight you have to carry doesn't matter at all. I can beat people in 5k that weight 20+ pounds less than me.

This should be moved to general discussion.
