Middle Distance Tri
RE: Can we stop the hype about Gwen Jorgensen ?
I do not get why she chose to go from what is considered “middle distance” in the tri world to marathoning. She was competing in races lasting well under 90 minutes. Other than money (which in get) I don’t understand the big jump in distance. She clearly seems to have the speed for a 5k/10ker. And not the endurance or ability to hold up to 100+ training weeks.

Are you crazy? She's run 15:15 this year - less than a year after giving birth. The US leader is 15:13. You call that "doing OK?" I call it doing incredible. The issue seems to be she's not doing as well at the longer distances.
