I the running universe, it’s not uncommon to encounter runners that have zero interest in running races. They have no need to compete. The “training” runs fulfill whatever it is they need fulfilling, whether it be fitness, stress relief, the intrinsic joy of the physical movement, socialization… whatever.
For those that DO run races, training usually focuses on improvement when competing. They may still train for the reasons listed above, but there’s a competitive edge to their Read More...
