I really like Luke Puskedra.

Mostly because, at his young age, he has experienced the absolute crap experience that a bad marathon can provide. His first marathon was so bad that he gave up running, gained 20 pounds, and it took his lovely wife and his supportive coach to bring him back.

Puskedra is a thinking man’s marathoner. In that introspection, there can be both positives and negatives. Andy Powell, Luke’s coach, gets that and keeps the training in perspective.

If Luke Puskedra can keep his head together tomorrow, in the 26.2 miles of absolute pressure, he could make the team. Here is a fine piece by Race Results Weekly on Luke and his journey.
