He recently announced on his Facebook page that due to a lingering achilles injury he was unable to train efficiently but hopes to remain active in the sport.
It'd be nice too seem him run some longer races even if they are just doing it to a casual extent. I've always wondered what a life after pro running is like it will be nice to follow him.
Best of luck to him in Med School.
Here is the quote.
"The time has finally come for me to move on towards the next stage of my life. Danika and I recently moved from Austin to Dallas where I will be attending medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. It is a great privilege to be able to attend such a prestigious medical school and I’m looking forward to learning in some great local hospitals. Becoming a doctor has always been one of my biggest goals and something I have worked towards since high school (track just provided a good detour for a few years). Unfortunately, a very stubborn achilles issue has prevented me from being competitive on the track over the last two seasons so I felt that the time was right for me to move on from track being my primary focus. I still hope to remain very active in the sport and possible see what I can do in some longer road races."
