Where Your Dreams Become Reality

Quote of the Day:
"I'm just so happy for my father, that I can honor him one more time. God bless you, dad"

-Darren Brown on running 3:59.99 to become the first father/son sub 4 minute mile combo (with his late father Barry) in the US. Barry was a great runner who committed suicide and the article is lengthy, well researched and a must read. We put it up over the weekend but didn't feature it prominently enough. Trust us. Read it.

Plus praise for Leo Manzano, and Richard Thompson (9.93 100m) and we prove once and for all what is the best conference in America. On page 2, we recap all the pro action from the adidas meet and the roads, tell you why LA is not a sports town, talk about the NYRR possibly going overseas, talk about the London Marathon upping it's game even more, and give you the must read of the week.

Gouchers to Go for Olympic Qualifiers Next Weekend at High School Meet (Border Challenge)

Excellent Article in NY Times on Bernard Lagat's Family And Its Tradition of Running A really good read. His whole family is full of runners. Plus even a little controversy. Kip Keino calls him a "foreigner" and says, "He comes like a tourist".

2008 adidas Track Classic *Results
LRC Shannon Rowbury 4:01.61!!!!, Jenn Stuczynski 16' American Record
Tyson Gay Gets Double, Wariner Wins 400, Lagat Wins 1500

Rowbury's run and her rise the last few weeks has been incredible (4:12 to 4:01). Stuczynski improved her outdoor American record and took a good shot at the world record. Tyson Gay looked untouchable in the 200, but beatable in the 100. Jeremy Wariner won by .29 seconds, but that was closer than normal. Allyson Felix was only 4th in the 100. Lagat won the rough and tumble 1500 and Galen Rupp got the surprise win in the 3k. We give you the LetsRun.com analysis.

Saturday's Action: Ali Abdosh, Dejen Gebremeskel Run 13:08 4 people finished the race and 3 guys broke 13:10. Pretty sick for a US distance race. They came up short of the 13:04 US All-Comers record but we hear it was windy. Abdosh just got the bronze at the African champs. Brandon Shaw won the 800. The main events are today.
