RE: The Rebirth of Des Linden - After winning Boston, Des Linden parted ways with the Hansons' team. Bold? Crazy? Wise?

That was a good read, thanks. look forward to Des the ultra runner in a few years


That's exactly what I was thinking. She said she didn't know how she'd do and I thought to myself, "I bet she dominates."

I'd like to raise like $300k and have Kipchoge do an ultra.

A few weeks ago, when Jonathan told me he wanted to do something on Linden, I asked him, "Who is coaching her and he said her college, I laughed and said, "Wait she sucked in college. She went back to him?"

I was saying it in a lighthearted way (tone is often lost on text/email). When I coached, one of the guys who loved me the most was a runner who was super accomplished in HS, did next to nothing under me (and my replacement as well) but said I was amazing. If you treat people well, being a coach is an amazing job.
