Really just seems like he didn’t like the running lifestyle and competition. If you want to maximize your talent in this endeavor, or any endeavor, you have to love what you’re doing. Personally, I love to compete and grit my teeth at the end of a race. He didn’t, and it seemed like more a job than something he loved to do.

I'll only care about the professional runners who I think would be runners even if they weren't elite. Who love the sport for what it is and not just for what they can get out of it. Jenny Simpson, Meb, Shalane, Kara, Bernard Lagat. These guys would be running every day no matter what.

Guys like Wheating and Ryan Hill and Robby Andrews and Rowbury...I just feel they're in it for the money

I totally agree but I think all top runners enjoy running to some extent, or they would never get into 3:30 shape. I think Nick Symmonds actually enjoys running but tries too hard to do the "bro" thing and acts like he doesn't.
