This was easily the most anticipated single meet of the year outside of championships and it lived up to the hype! Nike put its considerable wallet into play, producing Olympic quality fields across the board. Oh to have Nike’s money. That said, let’s discuss the elephant in the room.

I have to admit, I didn’t realize just how tough it would be to watch the Olympics live! Here on the West Coast, that meant getting up at 3:00am. Watching the Games. Then a full day of work. Then more track and field. Then bed long enough to get some rest before repeating - for a week and a half. Literally track and field Nirvana Read More...

It only takes one word to describe 2020 - Covid. Because it defined the entire year. Enough said. With that, my first post of the year is going to be about the things that I'm looking forward to in the world of track and field this year Read More...

I am a track and field junkie! It's easily my favorite sport. So I've been pleased to have track back to watch. But everyone hasn't been as excited.
