  • What's happening with the other Goucher?

    Does anyone know the status of Adam Goucher? I know he is on the down side of his career (whereas Kara is still improving), but is he currently training and planning to compete?

    I've heard that he is still training but has been slowed by injuries so hasn't competed yet this year...

      Thanks Half Miler...this give me some idea where he is at. I'm sure he can cut a big chunk of time off the 14:00.76 if he can get in a few weeks of injury free (or relatively free) training. But he's definitely on the down side of his career.

        He's older than I thought: turned 34 in February.

          I have been a fan and admirer of Adam Goucher from the time he was a Colorado Buffalo. His courage and guts are notable. He probably is not the most talented runner but has run some great times, especially in the 3000m and 5000m, his best racing distances. The sad thing is that he has been plagued by chronic injuries for the past ten years...which make his best PR's even more remarkable.

            Why do you think he's not talented?
