I missed this piece during my preparations for the 2013 FootLocker Cross Country Championships. Kara and Adam Goucher are, I must admit, one of my favorite running couples. I enjoyed watching Adam develop into a world class athlete and admired him for surviving a plethora of surgeries and his drive to return to elite racing. Kara Goucher took a bronze medal in the 2007 World Championships in the 10,000 meters, and became one of the most popular athletes in our sport.
The Gouchers have moved back to Colorado, where both Adam and Kara went to university. Kara Goucher, who was coached by Alberto Salazar, then, Jerry Schumacher, will return to the coaching of Mark Wetmore, who coached her in college.
Change is good. We salute Adam and Kara on making a move back to Colorado and being willing to try new things and old things.
