Nick Symmonds’ Book Is Out

LRCBook Review: Life Outside The Oval Office, By Nick Symmonds

The book by the 2013 World Championships silver medallist and third-fastest American of all-time at 800 (1:42:95) is out today. It's a good read. Symmonds is forthcoming and doesn't pull many punches, explaining what goes on at the Olympic Trials once the racing is over, why he pulled stunts such as asking Paris Hilton on a date or selling ad space on his left shoulder, and why he signed with Brooks in January. He even goes into (too much) detail about his love life.

Journalism At Its Finest – A Highly Recommended Read: 

If You Read One Thing Today, Let It Be This: For Former AR Holder And World #1, Tyke Peacock, It’s Been A Long Road Back From Drug Addiction And Prison Peacock was the AR holder in 1983 in the HJ and on top of the world.

Then we wonder if we should get on steroids, complain about the price of road races (in Kenya) and tell you how Japanese running is being overrun by Kenyans and Ethiopians.
