I did not run in college or high school. I always played team sports of other types such as tennis and basketball and soccer. Bottom line, at this juncture, running is a hobby that i find lots of fun. I have no particular goals with it. The goal, if i have one, is to help others enjoy it and develop training and nutrition methods to compliment it. Going out for a race on sunday is like going bowling or playing golf or whatever. No big deal. Sometimes you are on your game and sometimes not. This applies to all aspects of life.
If I had to force myself to adhere to schedules and rigorous plans and such i would not like it as much------------M
