:::I am suggesting you go talk to the coach and quit the team. You are destroying your body and will have stress fractures before the summer is over and permanent damage. I love you but don't understand why you are not the happiest person in the world. i know many, many people who would trade places with you.
p.s. running career over.:::
to all of the readers out there who think this is fiction and that there really aren't parents out there who would treat their child as such, here is proof positive. my friend who runs for a pretty decent D1 school keeps a blog and she occasionally posts about her problems with reoccurring bulimia. the other day i saw she had had problems the day before and wrote about how she was mad at herself for letting it creep back into her life. her dad apparently saw the post and left this very message.
as soon as i saw this comment, i was astounded at the connection with shewasoncearunner. this girl looks up to her father very much and loves him dearly... but clearly you can see the resemblance to the father in the story...
