Not getting injured is an important element to a successful running career. Giving this girl credit for records she never broke is a disservice to the entire sport. There are a lot of has-beens and never-weres who can claim that if they had just kept their shit together, they could have done X, Y and Z. It doesn't work that way. You can't claim success that you never had because you couldn't keep your body in one piece.
i should have stated that differentely i forget people on letsrun are nit picky about every last sentence and word. when looking at her xc season. going through the first mile in under 5:10 at probably every race and through 2 miles at aorund 10:30-10:40. i feel that during the spring campaign she would have def. been in the 9:30-9:35 range for 2 miles and 15:40ish range for 5k. sorry for the confusion.
