        I grew up a very rural country boy; but I see more deer in my current suburban hellhole than I ever did out there. Why? They are protected. Can't shoot guns in town limits and damn if they don't know it. There is a gang of about 20 or so that roam my neighborhood, completely unafraid. They will literally stand in the middle of the road and laugh at you when you honk your horn -- and not blinded by lights, just unafraid. The most fun we have on our runs is when we spot them and the mutts and I sneak up on them (we usually run a night). We'll get as close as possible, unlock the 20ft expando leashes and we'll charge em (sprinting ftw!) note: not anywhere they will run into traffic. I've come within inches of touching them myself, the dogs I've had to lock their leashes just in the knick of time a few times. They aren't afraid of people or cars, but they are of dogs. Except I think they have figured out the whole leash concept by now.
        That's fixable. All you need is an empty road, a GPS tracker on you or your dogs, and a friend with a really big, forceful vehicle. You give the friend the GPS, chase the deer to a road, and tell him to start the engine when he notice you coming closer

        I've never understood why some states choose to protect deer. I mean, I love the critters. As lunch, yes, but also very much alive. But it's a problem if they don't have any natural predators... they must seriously starve, depleting their own food sources just because they're too many... poor bastards.

          I think you guys are taking the post too seriously and dumping your "chronic cardio" junk all over it like your smarter than her or something. Shes a professional athlete. People like that dont care about "chronic cardio." If she knows about it, she understands it part of her life.

          Your telling me you have NEVER woken up in ur bed and said to yourself "self. Id really like to just stay here all day and do nothing." NEVER? She doesnt say she thinks about it every day, but she hates when she does.

          Not everyone is lucky like you and loves to run and look at deer. Especially when its their JOB. If it was your JOB to run twice a day, I am sure you would end up hating it too.

          PS: I always have to crap when I run. Its something I've always dealt with. And believe me, I am nowhere near chronic cardio.

            The toilet-running effect is probably the biggest reason I don't enjoy regular long distance sessions anymore. Though, it's a great motivator to run a bit faster and find relief.

              I got a pair Merrell trail minamilist running shoes yesterday and really wanted to try them and so I went for a run in the POURING rain, thunder and lightening here on Okinawa. The weather was still pretty warm - probably mid 70s - and afterward I felt great! Being drenched and soaked to the bone didn't phase me. It was weird expierence for me because I usually HATE running but I think becuase I have started doing it more and not just when the military makes me I am actually starting to enjoy. The more I do it the more I feel my form improving especially with the minimalist or barefoot running shoes. Really looking forward to getting back to Hawaii and doing some trail running with the new kicks.

                She is an elite runner, that is what it takes to compete at that level. Running twice a day and over 70 or 80 miles a week is not too crazy. There are many college distance runners who train hard day in and day out to be competitive.
                No, no and no: There are plenty of different JOBS you can choose from and get one that you don't hate. Well, the variety is even so big that you can change a job when you grow older or change the taste or education level. I had at least 5 long term jobs not to speak about short intermediate ones and loved them all! Crisis and everything but still its not just 1 type of job left in the world!
                And it IS crazy to spend every day of your life just running and hating it and doing nothing else. The fact that there are many others that do the same doesn't change it. Who needs her or anybody being comptetive in running? Does the fact that she and a bunch of others runs faster and faster in any way change your and your family's life for the better? Or anybody else's life? Professional sport and sponsoring and advertising is crazy in itself. If she prefers that money, take it and don't whine, who wants whinning gladiator?

                  Your reading too much into her post. She posted 13 things she hated about running. That doesnt mean she hates running. She could probably post 13 things she loves about running. This thread was just made for advocates of chronic cardio to feel better about themselves because theyre so much smarter than a millionaire athlete.

                      I love running because it clears up my mind, after it I'm able to focus on things more clearly, after all that energy I had is gone and I know I have put it into good use
