WATCH: Chris Derrick Is Back, Runs 27:38 10K
Nov 27, 2016This weekend in Japan, Chris Derrick took third in a 10K in 27:38. The time is a big deal--it's Derrick's first time under 28:00 since the 2012 Olympic Trials, it's only 7 seconds off his best time ever and it is the third fastest time by an American this year. Only Galen Rupp and Leonard Korir's times at the Olympics were faster. Watch the full race below.
How I Remember the Solinsky 10k Story
May 1, 2016Editor's note: I was interviewed Friday by John Walters of Newsweek who is writing a piece on Chris Solinsky's 10,000 meter race (properly named the Kim McDonald 10,000 Meter Run) from the 2010 Payton Jordan Invitational. The story follows the recent announcement of Solinsky's retirement. In the middle of the interview, I had to catch my flight to Stanford so while I was flying I started to jot down some notes for our call and the notes eventually became my personal account of that evening. With it being the six-year anniversary of that American record race, I thought I'd share my reflection with the audience that watched the race with us that evening.
