In the 2002 Forum Review Intro written by Charlie he mentions that the site only had 52 hits the first month.
Well, half of those were probably from me lol. I would check the site every morning to see if it went live.
I had the pleasure of meeting Dave Tate this past weekend. He was one of the few people… actually the only person to acknowledge the hours Charlie put into the forums. His comment was and Charlie did it for free. Well not exactly. Charlie did it to regain what he felt he lost. He was fighting to regain his reputation.
No doubt Charlie’s legacy continues to grow and he as certainly regained what he has lost in the minds of true sprint coaches. As stated previously in the recent past I cannot count how many people consider Charlie to be the most influential coach in their sprint training.
