    Re: Craig Masback.

    I'd like all you folks who think Craig Masback's commentary is so bad and in error give some examples..'cause I've been an avid fan of T & F since 1956 and a distance runner since 1959 and thought he...
  2. Re: ¶Paris DL: w1500—Hassan 3:57.00, 2 Americans sub-4:00

    Here's what I would say re: the debate over which is better, winning a slow race or losing with a PR: it depends on the athlete and how THEY feel about it. And I would defend, in a measure, aaronk's ...

    Re: Craig Masback.

    I respect anything Alan Shank says as I have enjoyed his knowledgable, interesting posts, and I agree unhesitatingly that Tim Hutchings is the best, but I guess I like Craig Masback and think he did...

    Josh McDougal comeback.

    It was heartening for me to see Josh McDougal run the Peachtree 10K race and run a good 29:41 time. Josh was running right with Galen Rupp a few years ago but severe chronic injury took him out. I...

    Re: Nick Symmonds.

    Another example of what the bane of all athletics (injury) can do...wipe out your season. Hope to see him back next outdoor season, since he has declared that he is retired from indoor competition.

    Craig Masback.

    I noticed in some of the talk of the quality of announcing of the USATF meet that Craig Masback was mentioned in a negative way. And I'm wondering why? As I have watched all the distance races he was...

    Nick Symmonds.

    Anyone know if Nick Symmonds is planning any races this summer?
  9. Re: ¶2014 USATF: m1500--Leonel Manzano 3:38.63

    I just watched an interview with Jordan McNamara re his goal to contend for the 1500m title in this meet...but I didn't see him on the form chart...anyone know what happened?

    Re: 2014 USATF--w5000---Huddle favored

    Exactly...people aren't machines...and she wasn't at her best in the NCAA race. Makes perfect sense not to run.

    Re: ¶2014 USATF: w10,000—Kim Conley 32:02.07

    I thought Hasay ran a near perfect race...conserving energy all through the race by never leading until she took the lead with 250 to go with an impressive move. But Conley has more speed and she...

    Women 400m times, progression.

    This is probably somewhat old hat with other previous threads but I think it's remarkable (and somewhat disappointing) that women's 400m times are substantially slower than earlier years. It's quite...
  14. Re: ¶2014 NCAA: w5000—Marielle Hall (Texas) 15:35.11

    Well I was right about Cuffe not getting within 20 seconds of her 15:11 Stanford PR...but was really surprized that D'Agostino was even further from her 15:11 PR. It was obviously not a good day for...
  15. Re: 2014 NCAA: w5000—3 straight for D'Agostino?

    D'Agostino wins handily...Cuffe's 15:11 was one of those Stanford ideal conditions times...so she won't be within 20 seconds of that.
  16. Re: 2014 NCAA: m1500—Lalang over defender Fleet?

    Lalang will have a hard 5000m in his legs from the day before and Fleet will out kick him.
  17. Re: 2014 NCAA: m10,000—Cheserek favored

    Lindgren was a running phenomena hard to comprehend. What a remarkable talent he was.

    Re the race, I predict Cheserek will let the Texas Tech runner (can't remember how to spell his name :) ) set...

    Would like to have seen how Evan Jager could have done in this race...but, of course, he's focusing on nationals now and will get in some fast Diamond League steeples after that. Would be nice to see...

    Re: German Fernandez

    Fernandez is one of those runners that, without chronic injuries, could be world class by now.

    Will be interesting to see what kind of form he is in right now. I hope he can be injury free long...

    Re: Pre Classic 5000 start list - no Rupp?

    I'm surprised that Rupp is entered in the 10,000m at Pre (see front page story) apparently with a request for a fast pace to give him a shot at his AR. This, plus facing some very fast Africans, is...
