Yes she has a point but bashing is part of the sport–and it happens with all kinds of sports (read any NFL or NCAA football blog comment list and you'll see hundreds of comments from armchair quarterbacks).

Right, as Ryan pointed out, it is going to happen for almost anyone who is in the public eye.  For anyone we put up on the celebrity pedestal, there will be those among us who want to knock them down.  Seems to simply be human nature and it seems naive of the author to believe that running should somehow be exempt from it.
