  • Alan Webb It's His Life

    Please stop the "bashing" of Mr. Webb. Unless you've competed at the highest levels you have no idea of what it takes to get there, stay there, and progress. Although I never made it to the top, as a "former" 14:41, (5k), 30:15 (10K), 4:07 (mile) runner I can only admire the work that goes into climbing the mountain. When you can train like Mr. Webb, race like Mr. Webb, and are still climbing to the top like Mr. Webb it's only made harder by the likes of you "bashers." So stop the bashing and go out and train, who knows maybe one day you'll be able to say that you too tried to make it to the top. It's ok to try but at least try and by all means let him try. It's his life and career after all.

      Ironically enough, it is the starting of threads like this that gets the nastiness going. Let's just drop the whole thing, K?

          my god! everything that you and everyone else is saying has already been said. quit talking about Webb until he races or does something of note. you're not posting anything original.

            It always has to come down to T&FN, doesn't it? I was thinking it might have been that secret 3:53 he ran in HS that leaked out.

                    Your computer speaks to you? That's kinda cool, but spooky. Is its name HAL 3000?

                        No, I MEANT 3:35--who cares about a 3:53 mile anymore...he's already done that. And, yes, my computer speaks to me...doesn't yours? You should hear what my books are saying...

                          Uh, yeah, I know, hence the joke about partial dyslexia. Never mind.

                            3:35 still won't make the top 20 list. Are we talking about being competitive here in the U.S. or with the rest of the world?

                              sorry, but i don't sit glued to my computer for hours on end, so i don't see all the trash talk. and i still say t&fn should have known better, i don't care if Webb ran 3:35 in HS.
