    Now that we've all been educated on the geography of Texas ( :roll: ), back to the meet itself!!

    Who will be Eaton's competition in the 400H??
    He's run 50.1 twice.
    Can he run 48-high or 49-low by himself??

    Does Reese get a World Leader??

    Has Jones lost enough of her bobsled weight to be able to get back to "elite" hurdling status??

    Dum-de-dum-dum------dummmmmmmm!!!! :P

    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...
    what's the difference between suburb and metropolitan area? Wiki's San Marcos entry:

    <<San Marcos is a city in the U.S. state of Texas, within the Austin–Round Rock metropolitan area. >>

    To be more precise, The Federal government includes San Marcos within the Austin-Round Rock statistical metropolitan area, based on the criterion that the outlying area, in this case San Marcos, has "a high degree of social and economic integration (as measured by commuting to work) with the urban core." http://www.census.gov/population/metro/

    Sounds like a suburb to me.

    No, suburbs are essentially connected, this is an ex-urb. Madison has a number of both while being less than a third the size of Austin. People commute from San Antonio to Austin and Austin does not contain San Antonio as a suburb [note that San Antonio is the seventh largest city in the US, partially by having many areas that might be thought of suburbs within its very large city boundaries (460 sq miles, half again as large as NY City - excludes water)

    Can anyone find full results for the Austin meet? They don't seem to be available on the ATL website.

    The overall manner in which this series of meets has been conducted definitely seems like just a really low budget experiment. I was seriously considering going to the Austin stop, but not even being to find out where the meet was a few days before it happened sort of dampened my enthusiasm.

    Not having the results posted smells of a problem. It is very easy in this day and age to get information into the hands of the fanatics. That this hasn't happened is quite odd.

    I think Paul Doyle is probably just trying to juggle too much by himself. He could be traveling today and didn't get the results in enough to post them or something. I agree that there is a lot of room for improvement regarding the flow of information.
