  4. How I Remember the Solinsky 10k Story

    How I Remember the Solinsky 10k Story

    May 1, 2016

    Editor'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. Read the Newsweek story from Walters here
