Question

Holly used to train with a really cool running club where everybody

looked sort of healthy and "real." No waifs! When they folded after Christmas, she was really bummed. But, this spring, she's planning to train with the Valley Road Club Track Team. Her best friend runs with them and she told Holly that they won't even look at anybody over 100 pounds. So, Holly had to put herself on a pretty strict diet. Most days, she comes in under 1,200 calories, though some days she cheats and then she feels out of control. Last week, her coach stopped her after a workout and asked her whether or not she was menstruating. Holly thought that was a pretty weird question, so she just said sure, but then when she thought about it, she realized that she's been so focused and stressed out lately that she really didn't know! The first 5K is only a week away, so she's going on a juice fast this weekend. Holly feels she just has to run her fastest 5K.


1. What factors increase Holly's risk for the female athlete triad?  
2. Explain her increased risk of osteoporosis, stress fractures, and injuries. 
3. Do you think that her increased risk of disease and injury might change her disordered eating behaviors? Why or why not?
4. What, if anything, do you think Holly's track coach should do?  
5. Why is intervention even necessary, since the 5K is only a week away?
