The time chasing on the oversized track in Washington began in earnest today with 2014 UW Indoor Preview in Washington. Below we give you the leading distance from that meet and others this weekend.

In Washington, American mile record holder Alan Webb began his 2014 campaign with a 4:02.81 fifth place showing in the mile in a race won by the Oregon Track Club’s Pat Casey who dominated his first race as a pro by running 3:58.06 – the world’s first sub-4 of 2014.

Webb confirmed what many suspected was the case. He’s no longer being paid by Nike although he did race for the Bowerman AC in a Nike singlet.

“My training has actually changed quite a bit. I’m no longer with Nike anymore. I’m being coached by  Jon Marcus who is the coach at Portland State,” said Webb after the race. “I’ve made some changes to my training just so I can stay healthy. It’s not fun when you get hurt. That’s not how I fell in love with running – sitting around and waiting for something to heal up. I’m doing a lot more cross training.”

In women’ s action, Shannon Rowbury made her debut for Alberto Salazar and the Nike Oregon Project and we found out why she wasn’t in the 1000 in Boston on Thursday – she’s far from American record shape. Rowbury, who has a 2:00.47 pb, ran just 2:07.72 for 4th. Her teammate Jordan Hasay made her indoor pro debut in the same race in fifth in 2:08.85, but that’s relatively a much better showing for Hasay as Hasay’s 800 pb is just 2:08.32. The 2:08.85 pb was an indoor pb for Hasay (2:10.04 previous pb indoors).

We present to you the leading results from the selected meets across the country below.
