Subject: RE: Unleashed: Megan Goethals Is At Peace. Finally. She was under 100lbs!
best part of the article!!
Goethals is a self-described "track geek, definitely." She knows times of competitors across the nation, and will have a mental scouting report on the fields she faces in Boise Friday and Saturday. She devours all the running information she can.
That means she read disparaging internet comments inside the track community about her weight and her health when she first got to UW, and while she was idled. Critics wondered why UW ever signed her. They recklessly diagnosed her from afar with eating and emotional disorders.
They added more hurt onto an 18-year-old young woman who was already suffering internally.
"She just wasn't eating enough for all the training she was doing."
Now that Goethals is back up to 115 pounds on her way to Denfeld's goal for her of 120, back to stacking up national championship appearances in outdoor track, cross country and now this weekend at the NCAA indoor finals, I asked if a part of her screams "TAKE THAT!"--or worse -- to those cowards behind anonymous keyboards.
"I would like to say no. But, honestly, yes," she said, laughing.
"When I was having issues and such Coach Metcalf would come to me and say, `You've just got to use that stuff as ammunition. Kind of show them, `Look me now. I actually did it.'
