RE: Teg runs a 10k, believe it.

For those of us who aren't American and don't know much about Teg - what's the deal with the "Teg doesn't run 10k" joke?


A year an a half ago when he was really knocking down his races a bunch of LR guys here wanted him to run a 10,000. That did not fit his objectives at the time and said that he would not do it for a while. Also note that Teg did run some 10ks in XC.

Also, Teg is a very big guy (as is Solinsky), beyond the normal 10,000 runner size. As a related note, if you go back to his Footlocker races you will see that he was WAY shorter than Dobson, who is tall, but I think is now shorter than Teg. Teg must have grown 6 inches or more in college -- no wonder he had some injury/strength problems (he faded at the very end of some key races).
