A running blog, of sorts
Thanks Scott. Interesting point about not doing things (a sport, running etc) with the object of garnering praise from others. I think children often fall into this trap. They don't need much encouragement to do an activity. They'll continue to do it for the praise and because it's the right thing to do, not because they love it and really want to do it for their own self improvement.
Yes Ewen, I've definitely seen that with kids. Also a guy here I knew, used to run marathons because it got him a lot of comments on his Facebook page, but once he found out that taking photos of his breakfast worked just as well, he gave up the marathons.
