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
Thank you for being the great decider of those who actually enjoy running. I'll take your opinion as fact.
When an athlete says "nope, don't miss that at all" you can safely assume they do not enjoy running that much.
