Help finding old thread on the Stat?


#1

can anyone find the link to the Milesofsmiles15 thread about the end of highschool and how he wasn’t sure what he was gonna do and whatnot? Would be much appreciated.


#2

This one?


#3

Yes! thanks a ton. needed inspiration for my final shot at a decent college essay. the first bunch were total garbage, and now i have about 30 hours to get one done.


#4

Man im going to have to start thinking about running in college too because all the schools I applied to are d1.

Edit: tt will never be as good as the stat :frowning:


#5

will be applying tonight and tomorrow… only 1 d1, rest are d3s. will be running wherever i go, but im certainly going to miss being “the” runner.


#6

Yeah its a sad thing, now im going to be doing a lot of thinking about this, I might end up joining a triathlon club. I love tris but I don’t like that it takes away from my running.


#7

what places are you applying? walk-on standards?


#8

Don’t give up running, once you stop it’s all over from there.


#9

Thats not true. I took over a year off after I graduated high school and went to college and now I’m back at it training for a half marathon. That time off was amazing it’s exactly what my body needed.


#10

MSU, Western Michigan, University Illinois at Chicago, Oregon

i have quick responses because im bored out of my mind


#11

See! A half marathon! It’s all over.


#12

Haha how is it all over? I don’t plan on running a full marathon afterwards. I’m running this half for personal reasons and also to get back into shape. If I’m in great shape for the half I can maybe walk on at my school if I want to give it a shot.


#13

Well unless you go to Oregon, you could probably at least take a shot at those other ones. Then again, i don’t have the slightest clue what kind of runner you are haha.


#14

Yeah im probably not going to end up at Oregon we go there a lot but its far. MSU would be kinda tough for me I think, and there other two schools only have track.


#15

ouff, that’s tough. I know a lot of bigger schools have some pretty intense club teams, which is always an option. i have a friend at SUNY Binghamton who is doing far more running with the club than he ever did in high school.


#16

Yeah MSU has a pretty good club so I hear


#17

So that’s always an option. I’m applying to a pretty wide variety of schools athlletically, since my track times last year don’t really represent me as a runner, but I still have to run some races this year to prove it.


#18

where are you applying?


#19

As of now: Butler, Allegheny, Kenyon, Ohio Wesleyan, SUNY Geneseo
