Fighting Illini senior Angela Bizzarri has done it all in the NCAA. She's won indoor titles, outdoor titles and, this past fall, took the cross country title from a stacked field of runners. With the completion of her NCAA career in her sights, Bizzarri is looking past this outdoor season and wants to continue running and bettering 5,000-meter running. With a 15 minute, 33.02 second personal-best time, you can bet we'll see that time bettered time and time again! Sunday! Did you get your long run in? Yes! Sundays are my long run days! I did an...

New Mexico's fifth-year senior, Chris Barnicle, who used to compete as an Arkansas Razorback, recently finished as the second-collegiate runner at the Payton Jordan Stanford Meet in the Kim McDonald 10,000-meter run. Barnicle crossed the line behind Liberty's Sam Chelanga, and crossed the line in 28 minutes, 10.59 seconds for a big personal-best time. The Massachusetts native is coming off a tremendous NCAA indoor season, where he finished fourth overall in the 5,000 for All-American honors, and is looking to rip things up in the his last bid ...

Texas Tech's Gilbert Limo, a junior from Eldoret, Kenya, converted from running the 400-meter hurdles to running the longest hurdle event—the steeplechase. Limo's got the third-fastest time in the NCAA right now, with his eight minute, 42.99 second race at the Cal Brutus Hamilton Invitational last weekend. With his eyes set on a podium finish at NCAAs, Limo says after a poor indoor track season he's ready to excel. Can you open up with talking about your race at the Brutus Hamilton Meet? I think it was a nice race. I had a nice race. I d...

Loyola Marymount junior Tara Erdmann recently took eighth place in the 5,000-meter race at the Mt. SAC Relays, running 15 minutes, 55.64 seconds. Erdmann has improved ridiculously in the past 365 days. She's dropped her personal-best times from 16:27 to 15:55 in the five and from 34:30 to 33:22 in the 10. With improvement like that, Erdmann has grand expectations of herself and wants to see her season progress all the way through the USA Championships this summer. Let's see how she does! You were the second collegiate to finish that stacked 5K...

Penn State Nittany Lion junior Owen Dawson, a Pennsylvania native, recently sliced two seconds off his 800-meter personal-best time this past indoor season, running 1 minute, 47.77 seconds and earning his first All-American honors. As part of one of the best 4x800 relay teams in recent history, there are whispers of records falling at next weekend's Penn Relays, but you won't hear Dawson or his tight-lipped teammates predict a time or a finish. How fast do you think the Penn State 4x800 team can go? Are you racing this weekend? This weekend is...

Rice senior Jason Colwick, a two-time NCAA pole vault champion, recently won this past weekend's Texas Relays competition with a mark of 18 feet, 8 ¼ inches over Jordan Scott of Kansas State. Colwick has big goals and an exciting vaulting career ahead of him. What meets do you have lined up for the rest of the outdoor season? I think next weekend we're going to UTEP. Then we've got a Rice meet, a Baylor meet, another Austin meet...our conference meet, which is in Florida, then back to Austin for Regionals. You don't have to travel that ...

The recent sub-four minute miler is leaning towards redshirting this upcoming outdoor season with a team championship in consideration for next year. Casey not only has an exceptional last name, but also a great future ahead of him. Today is a Sunday, did you...

Hampton University senior Francena McCorory blew away the NCAA Indoor Championship 400-meter field on March 13, 2010, as she crossed the line in a stellar, American Record time of 50.54 seconds, winning by over a full second. Her time also would have won the World Championship title by over half a second. With the senior's last NCAA outdoor season approaching, McCorory admits she has improvements to make and looks to go sub-50! A couple days after your great race at NCAAs, how does it feel? Has it sunk in? It still hasn't sunk in, but it feels...

Virginia Cavalier junior Ryan Collins is going to his second NCAA Championship of the 2009-2010 season. This past fall, Collins placed 41st overall and more recently ran 13 minutes, 46.41 seconds for 5,000 meters at the University of Washington Husky Invitational to book his ticket to NCAAs.

Yeah, we usually do our long runs on Sunday. I went a little b...
