Poster: Inspiring Story
Subject: Unleashed: Megan Goethals Is At Peace. Finally. She was under 100lbs!
Essentially, she was disintegrating.
She weighed less than 100 pounds. She wasn't eating enough to refuel a body she was demanding to run more than 80 miles per week. In her second race at Washington as the most decorated of Huskies coach Greg Metcalf'sstar-packed recruiting class of 2009, the Gatorade national girls cross country runner of the year essentially crashed and burned into the cross-country course at Notre Dame.
Mention Notre Dame now, and Goethals winces.
"That was probably one of the worst experiences I've ever had," she says. "My body was just failing me. They had to shut me down for the season."
Metcalf and Huskies assistant Lauren Denfeldsent Goethals away from the track for three months, the rest of the cross-country season into the beginning of the indoor one.
It would be like Steve Sarkisian taking the football away from Keith Price two games into a Huskies football season and telling him to stay home for three months.
"I got really depressed," Goethals said.
"Yeah, I had a really rough start to my college career."
Rougher than you or I can imagine.....
