RE: Article: Adam Goucher is coming to grips with retirement
Either way, his role as an inspiration to the group that really kick-started the new boom is sacrosanct. As Kennedy was fading away, he was the ONLY guy willing to take it to the Kenyans, and his brashness and determination, especially in the face of adversity had a lasting impact on people like Webb, Ritz, Hall, Solinsky, etc...
While he'll never be satisfied with what he accomplished on the track, if we've learned anything in the last generation, it's what you contribute to the sport as a whole that counts.... and Adam, despite all the setbacks, has been an invaluable part of U.S. distance running.
Good luck to him, whatever happens.
