Define good runner.
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
So we are told that VO2MAX is not the only important variable that is important in running. It is possible for sombody to be a good runner with out having a particularly great VO2max.
What I would like to know however... what sport is most dependent on VO2max?

On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
VO2max is irrelevant.
Irrelevant? Really? Or do you mean... "less important than other things"? Seriously?
