An open letter to Tyson Gay

Dear Tyson,   I hope you’ve arrived safely in Lausanne. I hear Switzerland is wonderful this time of year. You should really take a cruise on Lake Geneva, if you have any time, or if you haven’t already.   Tomorrow, just before the clock strikes 3:00pm on the East Coast, you will have completed your return to the sport following your one-year doping suspension. That’s cool, sort of? I’m not sure.   Thats why I’m writing to you today to tell you that even though you served your time, cooperated with ...

U.S. Championships Women's 800m preview

We’re not sure if the upcoming U.S. Outdoor Women’s 800-meters Championship is the best event to watch this weekend because of the world-class depth of the Americans, or the fact that the defending champion, four-time U.S. champion, and mother-to-be Alysia Montano is on the start list.

U.S. Championships Women's 1500m preview

Once upon a time, there was a high school girl, a junior nonetheless, who captivated the distance running world with her carefree attitude, meteoric rise, and ability to continuously set the bar and then raise it.   You would think the story, or at least the high school subplot of the U.S. Championship Women's 1,500-meters, would end with the Nike Oregon Project’s Mary Cain. But in the wake of her pioneering performances, a new crop of high school athletes have emerged, and they’re just as unbelievable.   The upcoming Wom...

U.S. Championships Men's 5K preview

There are question marks next to the defending champion’s name, three savvy racers that could surprise, one face we’ve seen for what seems like forever, and one face that’s finally arrived.   The Men’s 5K at the U.S. Championships may not be like last year’s two mile jog followed by an all-out mile, but rather, a real race with all the main characters looking to get that winning jump on one another.   Below, we’ll give some quick takes about the ageless or aging Bernard Lagat, father-to-be Galen Ru...
