Our weekly LetsRun.com Track Talk podcast is here (subscribe here).

USA indoors are in the books and Rojo starts with an ego-pumping victory tour on his predictions. Then we discuss the the Bowerman Track Club’s success at the meet (and others not showing up), before weighing in on the biggest Instagram feud in track and field: who won, Paul Chelimo or Lopez Lomong?

Mondo and Joshua Cheptegei got world records, the NAU men are killing it and does Jim Walmsley really have a shot at the Trials?

We’ve also got a special nearly our-hour podcast with Jim that dropped yesterday here.
