    Re: Salazar & Galen Rupp

    I just read the Salazar/Rupp article! Anybody who knows track knows about hand-timing; if I'm told that a coach tells his runner to drop his practice sprints from 26.4 to 26.2 immediately I think it's a joke - the difference is undiscernible!

    Re: Salazar & Galen Rupp

    Returned from the OSSA meet today and Rupp looked good. On Friday he ran 8:22 for 3K in a total laugher. The race went out slow 2:18 for 800m and Rupp just picked it up when he wanted and cruised in the last 2 laps (looking over his shoulder, acknowledging the crowd etc...). On saturday he ran 3:49 for 1500m (:64, 2:04, 3:04) once again it looked relativly easy. Both of these races were against pretty decent fields. I think (and hope) he will get the H. S. 3K record this year, not as certain about 5K.

    When Lindgren ran his 13:44 in 1964, he was also a 4:01.5 miler. With the improvement of the tracks, which really helps in the longer distances, as well as the fact that 13:44 is now over 1 minute slower than the world record while in 1964 it was at most 30 seconds slower, psychologically it shouldn't seem that fast. I think that he will get it.

    >at that pace! I don't see Rupp capable of that.

    Ritz almost had it. Rupp's 13:55 a few weeks back was, I beleive, pretty much a solo effort. His 4:01 mile indicates he has more than enough speed to do it. I think he will be very close and might be able to get it. Those with the best idea of what he is capable of are Rupp and Salazar - the rest of us are simply guessing.

    Not official, but there's been some word of Rupp going for the HS 5000 record at Prefontaine. He'll have to get sub-4 somewhere else!

    Re: Salazar & Galen Rupp

    Great article - thank you.

    I am very excited to see at least one elite kid doing some of what we've talked about of this site. Using the veteren talent in this country as mentors and for the elites and not getting wrapped up in collegiate competition - instead focus on individual development and international competition. Rupp has made running a big priority in his life and his focus in commendable.

    Between Webb and Ritz we have three great talents who are seeing the big picture and the results are starting to show. I would expect similar things in the next few years from Galen.

    This is what the US has needed all along. These kids are pioneers into a new age of US distance running and pulling away from the mediocrity of the NCAA. It would be great to see some corporate support for some other young talents who would like to do the same thing but can't afford school without scholarship money.

    Corporate scholarship from Nike, Adidas etc. will would help others to pursue success above and beyond the NCAA.

    Salazar's "protective" advice is also reassuring. Taking a more relatively conversative approach will help to ensure consistency which is what both Webb and Krummenacker have now determined as being the most important aspect of a successful program.

    Way to go Galen and Alberto. Best of luck!
