Desi was once one of the most loved runners on letsrun. She was the tough as nails blue collar badass who sucked in college and grinded her way to the top over many years. But then she made a mistake that would prove to be fatal to her letsrun popularity... she won a major marathon! Just months later, she is has transformed into an arrogant, know-it-all, holier than thou, dumb jock who has no clue what is best for her. She is now only one more big performance away from pages of doping allegations. This will complete her grotesque metamorphosis from the female Brian Sell to the female Galen Rupp. Stay classy, letsrunners!
Actually, I recall people started hating on Desi when she went after Dathan Ritzenhein before Boston.
The Boston victory gave the hate a brief reprieve until she left the Hansons and seemed less that grateful (although she did not do a full Kara Goucher) for what the Hansons did for career.
