The Prodigal Daughter Returns
My favorite blogger is back! Lauren Fleshman, American 5k pro, had a ruinous performance at the U.S. Olympic Trials and subsequently disappeared from her usually consistent site AskLaurenFleshman.com. Her posts had been getting fewer and farther between as she struggled with injuries and forced breaks, and I figured with how things went in Eugene that she might stop running and writing completely.
But as she described in her latest post she just needed to get away from the running world for a while and re-calibrate. It's good to have her back, it sort of feels like a friend has reappeared. She gives great advice on running, along with a quirky, self-deprecating wit that provides a rare view into the life of a professional runner.
