    Woody who?

    Missing sub-13 by less than half a second must sting a little.

    Nice improvement for MC also. It seems his second best time is 13:20.06, Palo Alto, CA, MAY 4, 2014, per iaaf.org.

    Always a good idea to check indoor on PBs.

    Kincaid ran 13:12i in 2017.

    And he was clearly in great shape for the Trials 5000m, handling the initial crazy pace easily. But then he inexplicably went along with the slowdown even though he lacked the standard for Doha.

    Too bad but no one but himself to blame.

    I knew he was somebody when he survived (and thrived) on that initial 4-minute-mile pace!

    Wow, what a set of marks! Did not see that coming.

    Centro finally beats the family record, set by dad in Eugene in 1982 (13:12.91)! I think it was the AR at time, to be broken by Salazar about a month later.

    Operative point now is that Centro is strong, and we know he has the tactical sense and kick to 'upset' the Doha field (if a reigning Oly champion victory can be an upset).

    This just made the WC 1500 final a whle lot more interesting!

    My first thought, especially after reading the track was only certified for a 5K. It would have had to be "re-surveyed" for a 3K or 1500.

    What?

    Why would the 5k starting line not be the same as the 3000?
