No need to miss him - just go on letsrun.com. His name is now ventolin.

Better for what purpose?

HE was critical of HIMSELF!!

And he said it was HIS fault!
He sounded VERY humble and self-effacing in his comments.



A good coach will always shoulder the blame rather than allow the athlete to begin doubting themselves and also to prevent an IGNORANT public to level irrational criticism.

All standards should be attained in accredited races against your peers you will need to compete against. I am oh so close to cancelling my 40 some year subs. to T&FN. Glad I will be in the mountains of Peru during the wc's so I won't have to deal with this fiasco. P.S...USA will make its worst showing ever!!!

Whew. Thanks for the head's up about the Team USA.

How do they agree with you?

Excuuuuuuuuse me....for noticing the most famous FACE in American running circles these past 6 months......as the FloTrack camera showed her screaming her head off at Hasay.....for about 3 laps or so!!!

BTW, is there a "creep factor of +10" for noticing Salazar??
Because if there is, then I'm the CREEPIEST guy on this planet!!!
I noticed HIM.....before, during, and after Hasay's run!!!

(I also noticed Tara Erdmann! And if Galen Rupp, Mo Farah, or Treniere Moser had been there, I would have noticed THEM too!!!)

Yep, soooooooooo CREEPY, you can not imagine!!! :shock:


Noticing isn't creepy.

As has been pointed out, many on this board--including me--follow Mary Cain's running and have an interest in watching her present athletic feats and future progression.

But when you are apparently so enamored of a young woman that you simply cannot go X-amount of time/posts without mentioning her name--no matter how mundane and unnecessary the context--it is definitely creepy. And when you continually report on your Internet "findings", along with detailed analysis of her every word and mannerism, it may come across as going beyond simple athletic interest.

Others on this board have cut you slack on this but I've coached young women and I've seen this direction of behavior before many times. It always begins with rabid admiration of their athletic feats.

Sometimes that's the end of it. I hope it is so with you.


If not (generally speaking here), things can escalate in different ways, including extreme defensiveness regarding anything and anyone deemed to be a detriment to "your girl"--including, but not limited to, excessive criticism of the authority figures in her life, her parents, her teachers...

...her coach.

If you're not heading down that street, aaronk, you are at least looking at it on the map.

Thank you, everyone, for all of the great psychoanalyzation you've provided!!
It's saved me mucho $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ on a shrink!

Of course, the fact that ALL of you are WRONG about me (in regards to Mary Cain)....is totally beside the point!!

But, you know, don't want to stop you from having fun!
Go for it!!
I'm having a blast reading them!!
