    I've met Meb a couple of times. He's super down to earth and fun to talk to. He encouraged my dd to hold his Olympic & NYC medals. Also met Ryan Hall -we're both Stanford grads, so we chatted for a teeny bit about running on campus.

     

    Meb is great. Here is Meb with some washed out marathon runner Wink

     

     

    I'm holding his book and this is what he wrote in it for me

     

    Slow and steady never wins anything.

              My husband and I were running around an apple orchard to cheer our daughter on during an XC meet. Another fellow was doing the same thing. I asked him if he was a coach or a dad. He said coach (and dad), introduced himself as Kevin Hanson. So then we proceeded to discuss Desi Davila's having to drop out of the Olympics. Doesn't everyone discuss Olympic marathoners while standing in a random apple orchard?

                Leroy Burell. Former worlds fastest man. He is/was the university of Houston track coach at the time. It was after Texas Relays at a Wendy's in 2004.
