RunBlogRun Opines: Come on. The media scrutiny is one thing, but Galen Rupp knows how to turn it all off. The only thing that matters for elite athletes is the event, and Galen Rupp has three kids, a lovely wife and strong support group. His training has reached 120-140 miles a week, and his sessions are progressing. It will be fun to see Galen in Boston. Galen Rupp has a secret weapon: he is not obsessed by social media, so it is much easier to turn it off and focus on that race in Boston. Remember, he has run two marathons. He won his first (U.S. Olympic Trials) and took Olympic bronze in second. He should be ready for Boston.

Rupp notes preparations are good (EME News)

BOSTON (USA): Galen Rupp has said his preparations for the Boston Marathon have not been affected by the latest doping allegations surrounding his training group at the Nike Oregon Project, informs Competitor Magazine "It doesn't really affect me a lot. I feel like we answered all of the questions that are out there. And when you've got the truth on your side, you know you've always followed the rules to a T, you really don't have anything to worry about, and so that stuff is just outside noise that I block out," he said.
