Monte Hoppel, the dad of 800m star Bryce Hoppel and the GM of the AA Midland Rockhounds (minor league affiliate of Oakland A’s) joins us to talk baseball, USATF attendance, and his son going pro at [57:54]. Hoppel actually was impressed with attendance at USA nationals.

We start with the death of Boston Marathon course cutter Rosie Ruiz, then talk Konstanze Klosterhalfen running 14:26 for 5k ([8:24]), the Kenyan Worlds Trials getting moved just days before they were to take place (17:16), have a David Rudisha update ([23:27]), a Pan Am Games 800m preview ([29:59]), and a look at the 2019 NYC Marathon fields ([36:23]). Plus thread of the week, Jakob Ingegbrigtsen’s new car, Engels and Houlihan possibly dating, we get Rojo to be silent and have a few conspiracy theories.
