the author of the article had some valid points  that have been beat into the ground and that I agree with… however, he makes a big deal about having run 6 marathons, if you check out marathonguide.com, none of them recently…he just seemed mighty full of “whine” to me… like HE misses being able to run his sub-3 races and therefore it's the slowpokes fault…

the other thing he talks about are those glorious '80s as if Shorter & Rodgers were rock stars, I'll bet they were almost as anonymous as Deena & Meb… that's just the nature of marathon running in America…yeah, it would be nice to be the world power in marathoning (again) but I think we have to be gracious to those at the top who ARE rock stars in their country, where running is more recognized…
