    Losing to the second fastest runner ever is not too much of a black mark, and beating that same second-fastest runner in the two most important races is also impressive.

    For me, not having...

    Saying that he is not a sub-2:00 is very different from saying that he is 'just a 2:03 guy'. I bet there is not a single one of the top 100 marathoners that share that opinion.

    Aussies have been having an influence in the NCAA; just at Wisconsin you have a 1/3 in the 1500 the last two years, XC, 3000/5000i, 5000 outdoor. This year there is another Sydney-area frosh. In...

    I don't think of his as a sub-2:00 performer, or even a 2:01 guy, but to think that he is a 2:03 guy who only beat some 2:02 guy because he had wings on his feet is not a good read on the record. ...

    Another note from the course, during Thursday's prep and preview of the course.

    Vin Lananna said that the arbitration is set for Monday at CAS. He is now coaching UVa.

    NCAA Cross Country 2019

    I guess that I will start it since we have now hit the peak of the Regular Season (i.e., before Conference Weekend, Regionals, and the NCAA meet).

    The 4.90 allows Sam to be very consistent by PV standards; I would guess that going to a sometimes-too-large pole would lose that consistency. It is not that he has not tried it, it is that it did...

    Boston is rarely fast; the hills, even net down, are hard on the runners and there are no pacers. And, because it is an important American race, a lot of the top runners do it. So, keep Boston in...

    The extra meter would yield Pi x 1 meter, or 3.14 meters; where do you get 5 meters from. Furthermore, I suspect that EK was a bit toward the inside on the curve, at least a bit. I would say it...

    Probably all the European WCs had more than 10% foreign; 33% would not surprise me, and while Edmonton is not that close to even most of the US, I would be surprised if that was less than 10% foreign.

    I would have to think about it, but 48.14 is probably not my pick for POY. Given her 2:18:20 win in London, she clearly is the marathon #1 and has pretty good credentials for at least a top 5 in...
