If you're going to criticize me at least use factual evidence.
I pride myself on my consistency. Even when I wasn't that good I was consistent. Out of college when JK started coaching me, I improved every year I ran.
In 1998 I set a 10k pr on the track, and won the Marine Corps Marathon.
In 1999, I made the world half marathon team.
In 2000, I made my first track nationals and lowered my pr to 28:27.
In 2001, I won Mt. Sac and placed 4th at nationals behind Meb, Abdi and Alan. I also won a 10k in Montreal setting a pr.
In 2002, I had a nerve problem in my foot (one injury) and missed the track season as a result, but I paced Paula Radcliffe to her marathon record.
In 2003, I placed 4th at nationals behind Meb, Alan, and Dan Browne but beat Abdi.
In 2004, I developed a foot problem that has continued to bother me until today.
So in 5 of 6 years, I improved. I call that consistent.
You say JK wasn't successful with me, but he took a guy who never came anywhere close to NCAA nationals and had me finish 4th in the country twice at 10k. I would call that very successful coaching.
But i think you are out to just stir up a little trouble.
I'm glad this thread got started. I've received a ton of emails on the article and I guess I'll post some of them here (names removed) and link to it in the article.
