Despite the fact that the Economy is up against the ropes and Palin could actually win the debate tonight, there are other matters I would appreciate some feedback on.
One: Overtrained. I hear the comment used by coaches and runners alike when they are referring to runner who is beaten up not running well, etc. Some of you run a lot. Are you not overtraining? if not, how do you know, when do you know you are reaching over training mode, etc?
Two: I spoke at length recently to a very well respected coach in Westchester, NY. He is responsible for supporting world class east african runners here in the states. His runners are regularly top five at Cherry Blossom, Falmouth, Utica Boilmaker, etc. He has a heart of gold and does this work to support the runners and help them in life. He shells out lots of his own money and time and does not get any financial support from shoe companies, stores, etc. He is totally old school and simply wants to help runners get better. What do you all think about this, especially the charitable work with the east Africans. Are you supportive, do you think they take away purse money Americans should be getting, etc? Be honest and frank and back up your opinion with some solid rationale.
PS. Palin is only 6 years older than me. Maybe someone can pick me to be vice president next go around.
