Looks like The Greatest Distance Runner Ever might still be running. I hope so, but his injury sounded serious. Did he react too quickly? Could be. He's as fast as it gets, and crashed hard at mile 16 of the NYC Marathon. That would hurt, especially if you knew every other part of your body was screaming "2:03:59."
I want him to keep running, but a guy has gotta do what he has gotta do. He has earned the right to think about whatever he must to get his head on straight.
