Not much has been said about Rachele Schulist's Instagram post, the follow up pieces and the reaction it's gotten. Hopefully this won't get deleted because I feel like it's worth talking about. Her main post is linked on the front page, yesterday she did a great flotrack podcast about it.
In a thread that was deleted someone in a round about way said that someone like this shouldn't be commended because you only hear about these things after the fact and it doesn't help prove the point because they are never good again.
I'd argue this is not that way because she did get good again and weighs 20 pounds more than she did when she was running in 2014. She ran only 14 seconds slower in 2016 and the course was much slower.
To me her post, the reaction and follow ups are all great. It's not even all about weight and body image but also confidence, mindset and thinking you can be good again after any kind of setback.
