RE: Shalane is slow!!!
Races don't happen in a vacuum; you race as the situation presents itself.

Shalane ran an incredibly great race today. She raced the race that happened today; she wasn't alone out there and so she raced her competitors not some idealized internet version of a marathon. That's what tough and gutsy and competitive athletes do: they race the people on the line with them. They don't time trial. They race like Shalane did.

If you think Deena Kastor is coming back and will be even close to being a contender for the Olympic team in 2012 I'd love to know what meds you are on.

Kastor's pregnancy is her graceful exit from the stage. She's done.
