As someone who has been in the running world for almost 35 years, as a national championship winning high school coach, D1 coach, and member of the USATF administration, it is really sad to watch this strand. Outside of a few people who have added sensible comments, most have attacked people who wake up everyday to try and make OUR sport a better place. These posts go against the general characteristics of the running world, which tends to be one of mutual support and respect for those in the game. People have slammed coaches personalities, called young student-athletes at UNC, Texas and others places terrible things, and passed judgement. I am sure most who have done so have also done VERY LITTLE in our sport. Have you ever coached at the collegiate level? Have you RUN at the NCAA level? How can you call athletes who worked so hard to earn scholarships entitled. And didn't every young coach, at one point, have little experience and get a chance to prove their commitment to the sport. Sad to see a bunch of "Sunday morning quarterbacks" in the great world of running. That is usually reserved for pro and other sports. Very atypical of the running/track arena. Good things most of you are dead wrong about the values, commitment, intentions of the coaches and athletes you are slamming. Know SOMETHING before you post.
