    She’s resorted to sending out pictures of her hugging adopted puppies with bum knees? What happened to little babies?

    I wish she’d employed thisstrategy the last time and just tried to be back for the Olympics. (Bet she now wishes that, too.) Those early races weren’t important. She should have recuperated as long as possible and just tried to get a race or two in on the eve of Sochi.

    This is what happens when agents and sponsors push and over-hype needy, insecure athletes for pre-Olympic exposure.

    Anyway… I don’t like you… but… GET WELL.
