I mean even for the top runners what can you hope to make annually after you retire??
Most distance runners peak-out before 35, so what could you hope to make for the next 35 years of your life?
I mean for runners like Jorge Torres or Adam Goucher what could these guys be except shoe sales men? Maybe move up to assistant manager of a shoe store?? Work at the Boy's and Girl's club? I know these guys went to college, but when you've spent the better part of your life running and not building up a skill that's useful in the real world, what could you hope to do?
