Why do you set your goals so low wrote:
To the OP, why do you set your goals so low? Like who tells themselves, "hey I want to run for the Hanson's." They suck, they have never produced a sub 2:10 marathoner. Despite all their funding. Bill squires produced what? Like half a dozen sub 2:10 marathoners with no corporate backing.
Because A) even running the 14:00/29:00/2:20:20 needed to get into the program is a crap shoot for me.
B) They develop guys well, their best runner ever didn't even crack 10 in HS then ran 2:10 under them.
C) Brooks is my favourite brand when it comes to running.
I could see myself joining Brooks' beasts instead if I run fast enough in college.
