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.


Jorgensen can just run away from a triathlon field without having to kick at the end. Not so in track 5/10k's. I imagine she went to the marathon because she and her coach knew she couldn't kick the last lap in tactical races. Can't make a national team and certainly can't medal if you can't kick.
