Huddle Right At Home for USA 5k Championships

On Sunday, the streets in downtown Providence, RI will play host to the USA National 5k Championships, a staple on the American road racing calendar. Defending champion Molly Huddle returns looking to add another road racing crown to her already illustrious resume. Huddle has been outstanding in 2014, most notably in the 5k at Monaco, where she broke her previous American record by running 14:42.64 in July. 2013 men’s champion Andrew Bumbalough had been slated to defend his title, but he withdrew this week after a brutal showing at the C...

Mary Cain Found Her Calling With Alberto Salazar

.post-content img { padding: 10px; } NEW YORK -- The clock was still far from ushering in the bewitching hour one early-October evening two years ago when the phone rang in the Cain household tucked in an affluent village in Westchester County. Mary, a precocious middle-distance running talent for the local high school in Bronxville, was already tucked in bed at the time. The caller ID registered an unrecognizable Oregon number. Fully anticipating it to be one of those annoying telemarketers, the call went unanswered and straight to the answer...

In our weekly Q&A segment we asked Brenda Martinez a few questions about life on and off the track. We caught up with her before she took off to New York to race the 5th Ave. Mile. Describe your childhood dream. I started running at a very young age (5 years old) so I would say that I wanted to excel in running and go to college and be the first in my family to graduate. I did just that and 21 years later I still want to excel and improve, even if it's microscopic. Describe your fondest race memory. My fondest race memory has to be from last y...

Ole Miss Pole Vaulter Goes Pro

Ole Miss pole vaulter Sam Kendricks has elected to forego any remaining NCAA eligibility to pursue a professional career in track and field. Kendricks was the 2014 U.S. national champion after clearing a season-best height of 18-10.25 at the USA Championships in Sacramento, California. "This is a hard decision and the timing of it has been difficult for me," Kendricks said in a university press release. "I believe this is the best decision for my family, and I've gotten their full support in many ways. I love being an Ole Miss Rebel." Kendrick...

Future Stars Spotlight: Aubrey Argyle

She has been knocking on the door of a US top 25 national ranking in the early stages of this cross country season. No need to rush as Davis (UT) High School sophomore Audrey Argyle still has lot of high school left to move up in that group as one of the sport's future stars nationally. The #1 runner for the US #15 ranked Davis girls, Argyle was an immediate impactful freshmen last year as part of a team that finished 3rd at NXN. The 2013 Utah state runner-up in cross country and also running a 10:49 3200 in the spring as a 9th grade...

Sleeper Alert!: Middle Tennessee State

Just like pre-season in the NFL, early season results in NCAA cross country often come with a grain of salt. Lesser known schools may compete at full strength against higher ranked squads resting their starters, making any results recorded during this time inconsequential. Just as well, top teams may wish to run as a pack to practice team tactics, generally not providing results indicative of true fitness. There’s a reason why the Kolas calculator doesn’t count meets until the end of September, as training takes precedence over rac...

NEW ORLEANS – The top two slots for both sexes in Wednesday’s U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) NCAA Division III National Coaches Poll remained stagnant (St. Olaf/North Central (Ill.) men, Johns Hopkins/Williams women), but overall, the first regular-season edition of the top-35 was marked by a significant lack of stability.

McNamara Steals FloRunner of the Week

He's been having a solid season, yet we seemed to overlook Jordan McNamara when predicting the Fifth Avenue Mile. McNamara dominated the field by fighting the final 100m to nip Garrett Heath in a photo finish, winning in 3:51.0. We'll never forget that kick when predicting races again. Check out his interview below. Other FloRunner Nominees: Gordon's pick: Will Leer Leer is my FloRunner of the Week because he made $1000 by sprinting for 20 meters mid race, thus winning the half mile race on 5th Ave. This averages out to $50 per meter, which ave...

NEW ORLEANS – All is still mostly quiet in the first regular-season edition of the NCAA Division I Cross Country National Coaches Poll released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). With three weekends of largely low-impact, rust-busting competition having gone by and another low-key weekend left before the stakes are raised with the first day of countable meets for NCAA Championships on September 26, few teams moved more than a spot or two from their preseason positions. All top five me...
