Reality check

I keep thinking of Jordan Hasey, Oregon's distance runner, high school phenomenon who was wooed to Nike U, where she had a stellar NCAA career, going to the world championships and getting lapped in the 10,000. Well, it's not her usual distance but one she aspires to, and there's nothing like a reality check to let her know where she stands. I admire the hell out of decision to run. Whether she can get good I don't know. But she is living in reality, where many jocks don't go, especially those in sports with more subjective standards. She's a star in my book.
