    Maybe not in this thread but it has been a mantra of his since joining the board.

      Since he/her is a unregistered name we have no idea who Annoying Bastard is. Anyone can type in a certain name and spew out anything they want.

        Actually, it is refreshing to not be talking about "you know who". There are other US distance runners like Lunn and Torres that deserve our attention. Torres had a break out year by making the finals in Paris. Don't be surprised if Torres gets down to 13:10 range within the next few years. After Paris his confidence must be at a new high. Imagine a young runner making the finals in what is possibly one of the greatest 5000 meters field ever assembled.

          Imagine how Eliud Kipchoge feels. He is still only 18, and he won the darn thing.

            Yeah, but nobody expected that much from Torres.

              Here is the exact Holman quote courtesy of the "even holman" post.

              Webb needs experience and patience. I'm not a coach, so I can't really say how he needs to train. If you're a 3:30 guy, winning tactical races here isn't an issue. It was my particular albatross for much of my career, but a 3:30 guy will drill a 3:36 guy every day of the week. And right now, most Americans, with one or two notable exceptions, are 3:36 guys.

                This year he looks lighter and his form is much better.
