I train on the same track she does and often see her when she is in town. We chat now and then.
Sweet gal. Very nice. Not full of herself.
I do agree that she lacks a certain level of confidence. She could run more easy miles for strength but her coach is worried about her getting injured. In the past she got beat up running miles on the road but I think she was just running them too hard (for her).
I think she just doesn't have the killer instinct that let's say a Thomas or Pierce have. That's not the way she is wired. I think she surprised by her success last year. Now she is having what looks a bit like a sophomore jinx.
Still, she is not running that badly. Competition is fierce over in Europe.
Brad, I believe, was her former coach or adviser. He helped give her confidence.
I would really like to see her back running better times. If you meet her, you become a fan.
