Seems like you are into ultra writing. I bet you are a hoot at social gatherings.
Why would I ever talk about running in public? The only people that I talk to about this are here, nobody cares about running besides runners, and I don't travel in social circles that have me meet many other runners. I don't race often, or build my interactions around my hobby, so I don't really have a venue to explore the concept in-depth besides here - which is what the training discussion category is for.
I also do like writing. Both parents were english teachers and my degree is in political science, I started keeping a journal during my time in the military and haven't stopped. Why not write at-length, in the place designed for it, about the thing that I love the most? As I mentioned previously, I have the disposable time right now to lean into this project of analysis. I am pretty sure that I'll get something out of it. I hope that someone else does.
