On the other hand, I don’t think running behind the fast people is “fun”. When I see them race, I think “Wow” and I admire their speed, but I don’t find any inspiration there. I enjoy competing with people near my ability, but most of my motivation comes from competing with myself. I know I can run faster and I want to find out how much faster. That’s why I train.

I agree. I prefer to compete with runners who are near my ability, as well. The problem with running behind the fast people is that you never get to see the winner cross the line. No matter how exciting the finish is, the slower runners (including me) miss it.
