Roland’s Answer

You could consider getting a job as a personal trainer, fitness or sport (XC, track) coach, or maybe work at a gym.

Hi Cameron,
All of the earlier answers are great. My additional suggestion would be to focus on finding a company/job that meets the following criteria:
-The company vision is something you're passionate about, which makes you feel like you're contributing to society.
-The job is something that you enjoy, which makes you excited to go to work.
-The company culture honestly encourages work life blend/balance, which will most likely allow you to run during the work day.

As an example, I'm a localization program manager at Salesforce. I love bringing our products to and advocating for international users. I stand firmly behind the company vision and values. You'd never assume that this job lines up with endurance running. However, my role is flexible enough that I can take time during the day to go on a long run.

Being able to maintain that balance in life allows me to live extremely well, every day.

Jameel’s Answer

Hey Cameron,

The answers so far have provided great potential avenues. My recommendations would be a job role as a track coach or police officer. Roles that definitely involve running and and helping others at the same time.

Rebecca’s Answer

I like running too. I have to work on my day time. Usually, I would run starting early in the morning before going to work and on weekend & holidays. If you really like running, you can find some time to run.

If you would like to develop your career in Sports, you can start with taking some sport related subjects in college. Also, you can work as a part time in Gyms. That could help you to understand how the industry works.

Hope this helps!

Tiffany’s Answer

Hi Cameron, I think that Roland's ideas are great -- you could also consider working a job that keeps you on your feet and moving. Examples include working as a lifeguard, at a local golf course, or as a yard worker (mowing lawns/raking leaves). Although these aren't the same as running, they will keep you active.

Jillian’s Answer

Hi! You could look for a job with a running company like Brooks for instance! They have a great culture where they encourage running and they have all the gear for you. If you don't want to relocate you can also be a sales rep for them in your local geography. Lots of outdoor companies, active wear companies, shoe companies would all be great ideas.
