Can someone please explain to me the logic of her decision? Wouldn't she want the money from competing?
Why does she need a full year to get ready for 2019?
Also, the next 2 years are going to be brutal:
2019: USAs, World Championships
2020: World Indoor Championships, USAs, Olympics
This year should not be a focus for any runner, except for marathoners. No one should be running hard, or putting their all into having a tremendous year.
