the morning shakeout

Cross country. It's beautiful and the best when experienced as a team. Sez Chris Solinsky. And so many other successful coaches we/you might know. It's why the summer camps are so important. It's why having the right captains is critical. Imagine the life skills learned by leaders and everyone else involved.

Steve Cram's top 10 tips for running a mile faster than ever before. ...Great advice, yes? I'm guessing 90% of the people reading this blog haven't raced a mile, or even done an all-out mile in private, in many years. Hey, that was me for many years. Who wants to be embarrassed? But here's the thing. NO ONE CARES. Really. Truly. With love in our heart. We just don't. In fact, we will respect you more if you do some fast stuff in public. And if you do some miler training, as recommended by Cram, it's quite possible your longer distance times will improve as well.

Terrific. Must read. Q&A with Evan Jager selections. Imagine being in his position, your reputation sullied, and the IAAF not promptly announcing you were cleared, no violation. Reminds me of Alysia Montano, now over 20 months (I think) since getting the word she's due some World Champ medals, and still not received. I've chatted with Alysia several times. Such a dear, classy lady. It drives me crazy to think about how awful the bureaucracy and governance of our sport.
