Mary Cain was the best young runner in the world, breaking American records and winning World Junior titles. Her male coaches were convinced she had to get “thinner, and thinner, and thinner.” Then her body started breaking down.
She told her story recently to New York Times
This was a long time coming. For years, I felt broken and alone- I waited, yet no one reach out to help.
Now I am ok. But the system isn’t. And I can’t stay silent.
