A bunch of guys posting about her status on a message board does not constitute "endless speculation/rumor mill".

The same private gal who had a big Newsweek article touting her as the next American running phenom? Well then a quick statement as to why she isn't running would end the curiosity and endless speculation/ rumor mill. But I agree as people that tiny unnaturally (because no adult is that size even if they're short) tend to have trouble making it healthy thru 4 yrs of college running much less a pro career. Not sure it is all the coach's fault as she clearly came into the program like that but he also let that barefoot gal run at Griak last year and those pictures were tough to look at (and have since been taken down.)
