You guys need to cut the man some slack. Just last February he placed 4th at the US Trials so it's not like he's done. Bad days out there happen to everyone and if you don't know this you're either not a runner or full of shit.
I couldn't agree more. Aside from injury or illness, nothing will slow you down faster than stress.
