RE: What's the actual definition of a PRO RUNNER? Is this guy stretching it?
Tyler finished 2nd in 2:12:28 at the 2017 US Marathon Champs and currently sits 5th on the OT list. He works full-time, has a PhD, and a wife. He's been competitive for a long time and chipping away at the marathon. He doesn't have to be doing it. Heck, he doesn't even need any level of sponsorship. I'm tired of seeing blue collar athletes needlessly ripped on here. GTFO.
