Subject: RE: Why does Sara Hall still compete?
The person who said track is the only sport of "If you can't be the best in the world, give up" is right on the money.
Did the OP not go to the biggest indoor meet in the US?
I'd train for years to compete in front of 10,000 plus and win:
2011 Millrose Games
1, Sara Hall, United States, 4:15.35. 2, Carmen Douma-Hussar, Canada, 4:16.73. 3, Heidi Dahl, United States, 4:16.99. 4, Sara Vaughn, United States, 4:20.52. 5, Lesley Higgins, United States, 4:21.70. 6, Renee Tomlin, United States, 4:24.09. Karen Shinkins, Ireland, DNF.
But for the original poster, things like Millrose are a waste of time. Only the Olympics or time trials in Europe are significant.
If people want to know why track isn't as popular as it once was, this thread is a great example. The incessant chase for times and the focus and the lack of focus on individual races is a great start.
She's already had a good year in my mind as she won one of the two or three races where people actually care if you win.
