Solinsky is having a remarkable season, no doubt. And it can certainly be argued he has run the 3 best consecutive races (fortunately he didn't run U.S. champs). But what about the best season, or the best stretch of racing?
From what I can piece together, here is Kennedy's racing schedule in the summer of 1996. In a two month period from July 8 to Sept. 7 Kennedy raced 10 times in 8 different countries on 2 continents. He also set a new American record four times, twice each in the 5K and 3K. He ran sub 13 twice, sub 13:07 four times, and ran a 3K time that has never been bested by another American runner.

In addition, on May 26 in Eugene he ran the 5K in 13:12.14, and on June 21 he won the U.S. trials in 13:46, after running 13:58 two days earlier in qualifying. There may be others I've missed. But this was a pretty impressive stretch of racing by just about anyone's standard.
