|Subject: ||RE: She was once a runner|
The author, Danielle, did not have eating disorder issues. The coach told her to lose "some" weight to improve her performance. Randy Thomas did not tell Jennifer (the anorexic) to lose any weight. And who's to say Danielle didn't put on the "freshman fifteen" her freshman year....we don't know her weight as a senior in HS or as a freshman or sophomore at BC.....she may well have put on weight during her BC days which did hinder her running performance.
What's wrong with telling a college athlete to gain or lose weight if you are their coach. Football coaches are always telling players to gain or lose weight...it is a part of sport.[/quote]
Not true! The coach calls Jennifer's dad freshman year about her supposed weight gain. And Jennifer states in the story that this triggered her eating disorder.
