A professional runner makes a living as a "quitter"
Tuesday, July 24, 2012 - by Tara Rhein
WASHINGTON, July 24, 2012 — Runner Matt Scherer “quits” for a living. Before promising to “quit,” he barely made enough money to survive as he pursued a career as a professional runner. Nowadays he guarantees to quit running once he is on the track, and he makes enough to live comfortably.
Before becoming a professional quitter, Matt's career had been highly successful throughout his college years and at the beginning of his professional career. However, it is extremely difficult to be a professional runner and make enough money to live. The majority of runners fall into this category and are forced to find additional work to pay for bills and living expenses.
