    Anyone with any inside information on the Austin edition of this meet. Info seems hard to come by. The only constants seem to be that Lolo almost always runs the 100 hurdles and Mark Jelks seems to always run the 100. It would be nice to know some basics like where the meet is being held?

    This baby's getting HOT!!

    Two HUGE names---Ashton Eaton and Britney Reese---are scheduled to compete at the 4th ATL meet in Texas on Friday!!

    Eaton will run his "new" event, the 400H, while Reese will attempt to not foul out in the LJ!!

    While I can understand them wanting to help the ATL (and the sport in general) by competing there, to be honest, the meets aren't filled with top-notch competitors who can propel them to World Class marks!!

    So is this just a "breather" from the "important" wars of the DL circuit?
    Or an indication of how important the IDEA of the ATL is to T&F??

    Hope he gets his first sub-50!!
    And hope Reese gets her first 23 footer of 2014!!

    Meet is in San Marcos, just down the road from Austin.

    A little more than just down the road. Austin has a lot of suburbs, but San Marcos is much too far away to be considered one...

    Not sure whether or not it qualifies as a "suburb," but the distance from Austin to San Marcos is about the same as from Seattle to Tacoma or Los Angeles to Mt. SAC.

    Pedantic much?
    Guess my 10+ years in San Marcos dulled me to the great distance between the two cities... :roll:

    It's only 20 miles closer to Austin (30 vs. 50) than it is San Antonio. Maybe it's a suburb of both!

    But not only are LA and Seattle (much) larger than Austin, both are constrained by water and mountains so that going along the allowed directions in a much bigger urban area has you still in the same urban environment. Not so Austin (and lets hope for Austin's sake it stays that way for a long time) although I recognize that going along the edge of the plateau is a bit of a preferred direction.
