I believe the vast majority of letsrun messageboarders are very mistaken as to the recruitment of post-collegiate distance runners. The overwhelming majority of the very few that are even recruited at all almost exclusively have one company/group interested in them. So that offer is both their best and only option.
Have a friend in the business and I would agree. However, out of curiosity, what would you guess he signed for? Buddy thought $20,000 + travel + equipment + big bonuses only if he makes National teams.
