    It's meaningless to you because you have no idea what the people who coined it mean by it, nor have you indicated any interest in asking them. You aren't speaking for anyone but yourself.

    Why is it a meaningless term, because energy efficiency isn't simply interchangeable with velocity? That makes no sense.

    Interesting and unsurprising, given the thinking surrounding the 10.49 and the suspicion some people have regarding the wind having helped the 47.60 as well. The ratio should be lower the longer the...

    You gotta wonder how fast she could run 5k when she goes out a mere 15 seconds slower than her road personal best of 15:13, then averages 15:59 for the next 7.44 5ks.

    I'm afraid it's hard to get excited about anything Kenyan lately. I actually just don't care. May as well tell me when the price of paper towel is going down in Iceland.

    I just didn't understand why your second point #2 (particularly the 2nd sentence) is written in a way that tells the reader this is happening now, it's ongoing. That was my point. Yes I realize you...

    Sounds like you may have read it too fast. That was prior to the ban, not "right now", and SINCE the ban, "She hasn’t spoken to Salazar, as his ban forbids coaching, even over the phone."
