|Subject: ||RE: How little does life outside of running matter to you?|
I'm going to assume you're young (between high school or just recently graduated). There's so much more to life other than running. Running is a huge part of my life right now as I'm in college, but honestly I get sick of it sometimes because of how much dedication it takes and how sometimes running does not allow me to be a regular college student (example: a huge party or someone's 21st birthday that I can't go to/celebrate because of either training or a race the next day). I'll probably continue to run after I graduate, but it won't be a huge part of my life as it is now as there's so much I want to do that I couldn't do because running wouldn't allow me (example: join a basketball rec league, go to bars/clubs on the weekends without having to worry about training/races, etc.)
It's cool to love running, but it shouldn't be your life unless you're able to make a good living out of it.
