The idea of the "running bum" is gone. The guys who piled in a car to race each weekend. The guys who called in sick to work to run in the Penn Relays.
Yes, we just ran and loved it. Money was not a motivating factor. I like the pro aspect, but it seems that many young people have lost that spirit of adventure to chase a dream.
Money has to be involved. I'm not criticizing young people, it seems to be the way of the world to get making money asap.
I miss the old days.
