If you’re 1) spending more than you’re making on running 2) giving up opportunity cost with another career to maintain your level of running and 3) take your running seriously, you are CRINGE. That means all but maybe 5-10 runners per event in the country who take it seriously.
I’m a D1 runner and it costs me nothing financially to be on my team. It is also paying for my education, so it’ll help me eventually get a career. So yes, I do take it seriously and I think that most collegiate runners would also be in the same boat as me.
I think that the people who don’t take it seriously at the D1 level are truly the cringiest. They are the ones wasting their time.
