    How much does it cost to run the New Balance Outdoor Nationals? Gotta start somewhere. Start small, with maybe one or two meets, (re-)build a fan-base, attract more athletes shut out of the DL who...

    Looks like he's got the support of a former high-jumper in Maryse Éwanjé-Épée (1.96 PR and 4th in Los Angeles 1984).

    Quayle didn't wait 8 years. After losing in 1992 (as incumbent V.P.), he ran for the top job in 1996, and lost the nomination to Dole.

    What about the one-legged HJ WR? Someone with one leg jumped 6'8" on television back in 1979. Has anyone jumped 7 feet since then?

    Rule of thumb: If you're the losing V.P. nominee or the losing incumbent V.P., don't run for president 4 years later. Wait at least 8 years.

    By that time a coalition of sponsors will create their own global or Euro T&F circuit, with a distance run (5K/10K) to start and/or end the meet. To hell with the DL if they trim the schedule...

    So what happens with Desisa now? I slept during the first hour of the NYC Marathon, but I heard he dropped out at 10K. Twenty-nine days wasn't long enough for him to cool down from that hell run.

    By my opening post, it is obvious I was referring to the men's top 10. There's no question Kosgei will be in the women's top 10.

    That might very well be a w60+ AR for Joan. If Wikipedia's stats are up-to-date, she missed the w60+ WR by 52 seconds.
