Quote Of The Day
“As a female collegiate athlete, and as someone who was once a female high school athlete, I think it’s important that eating disorders can be discussed on letsrun. Many programs, both at the high school and collegiate level, don’t allow for visibility of the issue. … It saved my life and several additional hospital visits to see a thread debating about whether one of my idols had a health issue (eating disorder). It helped even more that, in addition to bringing up eating disorders, the thread contained several pages of comments talking about how bad eating disorders were. That discussion made me stop automatically thinking ‘I’ll be a few seconds faster next time if I can drop 2 more lbs.’ Weight loss turned from a performance enhancer to a possible problem. The basement lurkers on letsrun actually made me start aiming to look strong instead of starved. Keep the eating disorder discussions up. Open forum.”
