Run Away

by Robb Reel

I have been a part of sports nearly all my life.  I have dedicated a significant portion of my adulthood covering sports.  I like to think that I understand the mind of an athlete, because I have been one and because I have known so many so well.

Still, I found some pleasant surprises in the words of Rashard Mendenhall.  The 26-year-old recently made the decision to retire from the NFL.  Put aside any envy or jealousy, and misconceptions about a life as a professional player, and see what he has to say.

I think you'll be surprised by how his sentiments can apply to your own life.
