ESPN artitcle on Ryan Hall (Read 291 times)

      Good read; perhaps a bit long for my short attention span but lots of subtle nuances into the life of Ryan. Thanks for posting it.

        The same article is in this month's Runner's World. (took me 3 paragraphs to figure out I was reading the same thing, heh).

         

        Thanks for posting it, though.

              Dangit!

               

              I haven't gotten to see him finish since I started following the pro marathon scene.  Was really looking forward to seeing how he'd do.

               

              Speaking as a fellow Christian, I [think I] understand where he's coming from on the whole "faith-based training" thing, but even in purely spiritual pursuits, it's a good idea to have a mentor/coach/accountability partner, just to keep you from going off the rails.  As his experiences lately seem to indicate, so much the more so in the athletic realm.

               

              I really like the guy - I understand a lot of people don't - but it really seems like he'd do well to find a coach and stick with him (MTA: or her).

                Ditto to all of the above.

                  I always thought that his whole idea of faith-based training was blown out of proportion.  I always thought it was more, "I'm training and listening to the feedback my body is giving me and adjusting based off that.  Since my body is a gift and I'm getting signals from it that are influencing my training (helping me decide how I'm going to approach the day's workout), whoever gave me that gift is my coach"

                   

                  Also, imo he's just had some ridiculously rotten injury luck, very similarly to Ritz and Solinsky, but he get's more press because his "coaching" is more controversial.

                    Maybe god doesn't like him.

                     

                    Or, maybe god's a really crappy running coach and just better at things like flooding the Earth and inventing nice boobies .

                     

                    Personally, I've been hoping he'd disappear for a while now.  Maybe now he finally will.

                      Nope.  He meant god specifically:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITkmEyW_jnc 

                       

                      He specifically asks god how far "he" wants him to run each day.

                            I read this as "good Ryan."
