    Professional running? I did not know such a thing existed. Good for her!

    does it pay well? Can she maybe slip a few hundo to the AD to renovate Potts? Just thinking out loud, here.

    According to this, long distance runners can make decent money so long as they are a top 5 finisher in the US ( and beyond)
    Given Emma's performance at the collegiate level, I see no reason why she shouldn't have a successful and lucrative career.... Hell, it beats sitting at a desk all day.
