if this is true, she is likely going to join the group with Jenny, Emma, and Kara. Kara is sponsored by Skechers while Jenny and Emma are sponsored by New Balance, so they don't mind multiple sponsors within the group.
And isn't Neely more of a 10k type runner? maybe she should move up to the marathon. She could train with Kara. After Shalane and Desi that 3rd Olympic spot is up for grabs.
If I had to speculate, there are probably a couple reasons why Hansons athletes have injury issues and leave the group:
1) the winters. Its really freaking cold there which doesn't make it very fun, and the cold leads to increased muscle tension which creates a significantly elevated risk of injury. And if you're unlucky you could slip during a tempo and fall hard on your hip and be out for a few weeks or months
2) their training philosophy is a little different than other groups which might bug some people and some people may not respond well to that particular stimulus. They refer to their speed/tempo/long run days as as SOS (something of substance) days/sessions. Their general format is a 9 day schedule: 2 easy double days, speed day, 2 easy double days, tempo run, 2 easy double days, long run, repeat. Some guys (Brian Sell) may double on speed and tempo days, but most don't.
