Anyone see the Alan Webb article in the June Runner's World?
Interesting that he says:
a) <the Pre posters (on his wall) are really important because of what he represents to me - his work ethic, his philosophy of giving it your all in every race. Plus Pre was a rebel, man, a rebel.>
b) <as a life model, I think of (Jim) Ryun, because he's got a really healthy family and great morals. He had his career in running, and then went on to do other things.>
What?! Does Webb respect the "rebel" or the rigid fundamentalist politician who believes parents should go along on all their kids' dates and who opposes rails-to-trails legislation that would open up more trails for runners across the country?
Or is Webb just a 19-year-old who's trying to say what he thinks people want to hear?
He seems a little confused. Don't get me wrong. I still think Webb could put the band back together on the track, maybe even this season.
