Tuesday Morning Coffee Talk
Flotrack news and links for March 4th, 2013



Happy Tuesday Flotrack! Oh sweet baby (insert deity or deities here) what a day. A lot of news happened yesterday, most of which was specifically about one team.

Some people say running journalism is in decline. They say we've become too politicized. Too focused on sensationalism. They say we no longer honor our duty to inform the running world, but try to divide it so our corporate overlords can rake in the profits.

I don't have a joke for this. I'm just letting you know what some people say

And now the "news"


 
It's okay, Mary. Go get healthy. It's much more important than trying to win a medal at the World Championships. We'll be okay.

Please, please, please, please make it to the starting line.






Hurray uplifting news!
