  • Will Galen Rupps best event be the marathon?

    I know he still has alot of room for improvement on the track,but Galen would probably be a great marathoner one day.His coach, mentor Salzar is bringing him along nicely.If he trained for the marathon now I think he could run a 2:09 or better.

      I think Saladbar is grooming the Big R for the 50 mile. Afterall that was the last time the Big AL won a race.


      By the way, isn't gh in violation of Rule 15 section a, subsection 2? Is he therefore banned? Who will take over? I think it is about time someone from Oregon took over. This WSU influence has to end :twisted:

            Kudos, Marlow. Great restraint for a compulsive corrector of essays.

              I don't know whether his best event will be the marathon. At present the top 2 guys have 10k PBs substantially below 27 mins indicating that the speed they've brought to the 5 and 10 is just as important for the marathon as well - see also Paula Radcliffe. Let's see what he can do over the shorter distances first?

                Yes, he could be a great marathoner, but please stay away from it for a long time. We want to see you be a professional on the track at least until 2012 or 2013 and see you re-write the record books.

                  Read the book about Salazar and Beardsley. It explains why Salazar lost his edge and went to Ultras. It was a physical problem. Why mock the guy? He had a very good career for someone whose talent was far less than some other US notables and now he is doing a fantastic job with Rupp. Power to them both.
