Take it down a notch, boys. Though very obsessive, driven, and intense, Salazar truly cares 100% about his athletes. He WANTS them to succeed. He cares for American distance running- hence the whole reason for OTC...which eventually split into otce, BTC, NOP. My original post was not made as a negative, and should not be taken that way. Salazar did his thing, made a massive contribution in setting the bar high for American success, and is just dialing things back a bit. Nothing more. Nothing less. It's not because of any investigation. His group of athletes just put on a show, as did men and women from the other 3 groups he was directly/indirectly responsible for the creation of. Be happy about that! At the end of the day, please remember that he's also human. Meaning, there's no need for all the ugly things being said. When someone posts something so completely negative, I feel it is more of a reflection on their character, rather than the one they are trying to denigrate. Everytime I've ever been in contact with the man over the last 20 years, he's been nothing less than kind, and always seemed genuinely interested in how my own personal training was progressing. Let your hate go. As was mentioned, be happy for the huge contribution that he has made to a sport we all enjoy (and some of us love).
