One race does not burst a bubble
RE: Justyn Knight goes home DEVASTATED
It's one race! Justyn may have stepped to the starting line knowing he didn't have a chance at even a sub-4, yet still feeling willing to get race experience. He may have done a hard workout two days earlier, for all anyone knows. Or maybe he's been under the weather or challenged by an injury. Sometimes a runner puts his reputation on the line when he/she races when not nearly in top shape, but doesn't care what LetsRuns finest think, because running a hard (relatively) mile when knowingly sub-par is still experience. That's invaluable training, especially for a young runner.
Decree that Justyn is in deep trouble only if his 2019 goes bust. It hasn't. One race!
