RE: Thweatt won't run marathon trials because
As a member of the Boulder Track Club for several years, I believe Lee and Laura are making the right decision. For someone that just ran their first marathon, it is not the best idea to continue intense marathon training with a relatively short turn around, 3 months, and then continue to train for several more months for the Olympics. Again, for a first time marathoner, that is a tremendous amount of stress on the body that she is not used to. Lee wants her around for the next 10 years. It would be a shame to over work her for this one shot at the marathon spot while 10k is a distance she does well at.
Of course everyone is going to have different opinions. That is what makes this sport great. They obviously have a plan and let's respect their decision.
