Doom and Gloom or Hope and Light Podcast: Boston 2021? Tokyo 2021? Olympic Trials Without Fans?
January 13, 2020
This week’s LetsRun.com Track Talk podcast is here (subscribe and listen here or in the player at the bottom of the page).
USA Indoors is officially cancelled, the Armory won’t have any more track meets in 2021, and most of Japan wants the Olympics cancelled or postponed and Jonathan Gault is not too confident the 2021 Boston Marathon will take place.
But vaccines are going into arms (at the Armory), indoor pro track meets are being planned, and athletes are starting to talk about what super spike they’ll use in Tokyo.
We break it down with our weekly banter.
