Sub-13.30. Otherwise it's not a pro 5k career
geez...I can understand the "pro athlete" career, I was looking for more of the transition from hobby jogger to runner. We only have one race a year when people get times like that around here.[/quote]
But that was the correct answer. If you're not a pro, it's a hobby. If you're looking for a softer definition, it's exactly what OvO said. You can have a 22:00 runner that trains seriously and cares about improving. They're a runner. It's not at all about speed once you get in to the fake definition.[/quote]
Amateur Olympians are Hobbyjoggers. 21 minute 5k runners who earn $$ by winning their age group are Runners. Got it. Idiot.
