Testing a hypothesis on running

I think there’s a relationship between the amount of running someone does in high school (and earlier) and the amount of running one does as an adult. This is an obviously unscientific survey to test that hypothesis.

Defining the question: If you ran for your school cross-country team (or track, 800 meters and up) or ran regularly for exercise, you DID run in high school and should answer this:

Otherwise, you did NOT run in high school and should answer this:

  1. Confusing question for me … I ran track in H.S. And that’s what I did. I ran track and played soccer. Training runs on the road, but no road races … as an adult I played mostly soccer so plenty of training runs but not many road races. And anytime I felt like running a marathon I’d have a beer, which made the feeling go away. Then I had to stop playing soccer and I just got fat. If you come up with a way to motivate me, scientific or other, please let me know. Apparently I am too lazy to even check email for motivation.
