Walking to and from class I think to myself, "I could be doing so many other things right now to help me be a better runner" and it is almost hard to view school as anything but an obstacle since this sport of distance running is the only thing I am passionate about. So I have had thoughts about moving back home, working at my local running store (already employed there) and then dedicating the rest of my time to becoming the best runner I can possibly be since that is my dream. And then one day become a coach, probably a professional level because you have to have a college degree to coach at most universities. I do not care about how much money I make, only that I am happy, and at school, I am not the happiest because for one I am losing a lot of money I could be simply living off of or earning at a job. And school is really stressing me out even though I know what I want to do with my life doesn't really require a college degree. I am simply here to be on the colligate team which I love. my dream one day is to hit the Olympic standard for 5k, 10k and the marathon and qualify for at least one Olympic games and ultimately inspire others to get the best out of themselves as well whether that be running or anything else.
thoughts? or am I nuts.
