Was very sad to see this, I hoped that he would keep going until the 2012 Olympics at least....... :(

Think his body and mind are tired.

He has gone to so much.

Understand that he would like to stop the torture he sometimes went true. Running with injury's true the pain.

Whatever he decides he is a legand!!

I wouldnt be surprised if he was being 'encouraged' to keep running, cos his initial announcement that he quit, apparently came before he talked with his manager etc!
