In addition, sometimes they run so obsessively the previous enjoyment of it vanishes. On the other hand, the Competitive Slacker lacks motivation, is afraid of races, and often sticks too rigidly to one routine for too long. How does this apply to me?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
