Runner Definitions

I don't remember where they were posted, but I had a thought about the definitions we came up with yesterday. (Yesterday? Yeah, yesterday. I think.)<br><br>
I'd like to suggest separating Fitness Runner from Recreational Runner. The Recreational Runner definition was something like <i>runs for fitness but doesn't really like running; might sign up for a 10K race, train for a month, do the race, and then not run again for however long.</i><br><br>
To me, those are two different people. I'm a former Fitness Runner. I did it just for fitness, for a cardio alternative to the elliptical or stationary bike, for the health benefits of it -- maybe 2-3 times per month, maybe 3 miles each time. Half an hour on the treadmill. I would <i>never</i> have attempted a 10K (or even a 5K unless I was running more regularly than a Fitness Runner by my definition).<br><br>
Any thoughts?
