Quote Of The Day
“Many elite runners love what they do more than they care to admit. If I had a penny for every time I heard a runner say they hated talking about running outside of training, and then listened to them talk about nothing but running, I might actually be a real professional athlete (i.e. have some real $). Perhaps the denial of what you love stems from a belief that having more diverse interests is a more desirable and admirable quality. Certainly, this is true, but being so invested in a single aspect of your life isn’t all bad. It’s what we commonly refer to as passion. … And what’s wrong with having something in your life that you “nerd-out” over? Passion, wherever it may lie, breeds happiness, and happiness is a contagious quality, that makes us more valuable to other people in our lives.”
