    I've learned to absolutely despise social media for seemingly bringing out the worst in people on a consistent basis, but...her blog...wow.

    Tianna, you are SO much stronger than you know, and yet so much stronger than you were. Keep writing, I'll keep reading.

    Have read some of her other blog pieces, and this one ranks high!
    She should write a memoir!
    Be so much more interesting than, say, SFH's!!

    She WILL be back full-strength!
    And never forgotten!

    I asked on the USATF thread if she’d split from Rana Reider because she seemed to be bouncing between hotels since the winter. The blog post confirms a coaching setback which she says is now resolved. It’s sad that a lot of things don’t work out for her but achieving what she has while suffering constant setbacks says a lot about her character.

    Damn. A great post on not only being an athlete but an aging athlete and a human being.

    She's a great writer and storyteller. Hopeful now she's got the diagnosis sorted and the time to perfect a new take off leg she'll be a factor in Tokyo.

    Indeed.

    When I was young and lean and fit (all the way into my 40s), I was never sick or injured. I felt invincible.

    Nowadays, I am just grateful to be healthy and active, but there are no more invincible days . . . but that's OK too.

    I was always injured - hammy, ankles, back - and my feeling of invincibility was one of my biggest failings.

    I'd swear this sort of reminiscing got shuttled over to a thread titled (loosely) "Elderly farts talking about the good old days...." oh, about 2 years ago.

    found it;
