I'm famous for hyping Saarel when he committed to Colorado.
And I'm in the mixed zone tonight to see how newly minted 5k champ Sean McGorty did in the 5k at Pac 12s and I was reminded that Saarel - not McGorty (He was only 4th) - won the Pac 12s. Yes I know McGorty was doubling back from the 1500.
But Saarel ended up running the 1500 at regionals (he didn't have a 5000 regional qualifier) and didn't even make it to Eugene.
Anyone know if he's going to keep running?
