I'm as giddy as the next guy about her talent, but there is something off-putting about the continuing internet analyses and soaring expectations of her 'career', when she's still this very young.


Particularly with the enthusiasm exibited by a non peer.

Let's hope not.


Or Tim Danielson. Or even poor Debbie Heald who still holds the HS indoor mile record from 1972.

debbie heald is doing very well, although no longer able to run, there was an article on her a couple of months ago.

they should fly her in to watch cain probably break her record, the symbolic passing of the torch, just like greg meyer should be present when the next american wins boston, symbolic connections by history is good.

It actually is a pretty sad story. But certainly better than Danielson.

On the other hand, Tom Sullivan, who set the high school mile record back in 1961, continued on to do well at Villanova and is in fact at 70 still running some decent miles.

Cain has been compared to Mary Decker Slaney by some.
What's ol' Mary (Slaney, that is!) doing now??
Still run?
Coach?
Being a housewife/mom??
Make speeches??
She's 54 and a half years old now!!
Slaney should go to NYC to be present when Cain breaks the records, just as was suggested about Heald!!
