Katelyn Tuohy is one of those special ones that come up in a generation. Her talent, poise and focus is exciting, but one senses that she is taking it one race at a time.
Her U20 5000m this past weekend (January 19) was preceded by a swift mile at the NYRR Millrose Games Trials in the 4:43 range. Here is David Monti, our friend at Race Results Weekly feature on the Millrose Games Trials from January 10. This got lost in my emails, so enjoy, with my apologies.

Jenn Suhr opened the 2018 indoor season in Toronto, Canada with a nice clearance of 4.81 meters, and then made attempts at 4.91m. The 2018 pole vault wars are on!

In her very first 5000 meter indoor effort, Katelyn Tuohy broke the American U20 record for 5000 meters, with her fine 15:37.12. Read about her race and more in the highlights of US indoor weekend below! You remember Katelyn Tuohy? She dusted the field at the Nike NXN last December and ran a nifty 3000 meters a few weeks ago! Nice to see that Katelyn does some weight work as well. What a happy athlete!

CC back to Olympics
SEVILLA (ESP): IAAF President Sebastian Coe who participated in the open race at Italica Cross Country on Sunday said for Spanish media that he is "trying to get the cross country back into the Olympic program". He also mentioned Olympic Games 2024 in Paris as good opportunity as it was last time held in the Olympic Games 1924 also in Paris. IAAF President clocked in the open race 33:05 at 6.825 km in masters category (position 334). Considering his age, work-load and travelling a brave effort.
RunBlogRun opines: Seb Coe is the most traveled IAAF President and Seb gets it. The cross country initiative makes a ton of sense and 2024 Paris could make alot of sense. Most media in past on cross country suggested a Winter Olympic time frame, as Winter Olympics wanted to have more participation by non Winter sport countries. For Coe, this will not be a walk in the park, but much different than dealing with the Russian crisis.

This is the third European Athletics results report for the 2018 season. Carles Baronet, our dear friend from Catalonia, works many hours to compile, then edit these maganificent reports. As the season gets to the high season, you will see result for up to 51 members of the European Athletics association.

Bekele added to Farah vs Kipchoge
LONDON (GBR): The three greatest distance runners of their generation will race the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon after Ethiopian legend Kenenisa Bekele confirmed he will join Sir Mo Farah and Eliud Kipchoge on the Start Line on Sunday 22 April. The stellar trio of Bekele, Farah and Kipchoge have a combined total of eight Olympic gold medals and 12 World Championship golds between them. Hugh Brasher, Event Director of the Virgin Money London Marathon, said: "This is a truly mouth-watering prospect. Sir Mo, Eliud and Kenenisa could all put forward a persuasive case for being the GOAT (the greatest of all time) and now they meet for the first time over the marathon distance at the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 22 April."
RunBlogRun opines: Boston has the finest Americans and London has the finest in the world. Bekele, Farah and Kipchoge? Come on. These three have battled before, and they are a handful for any marathoners from anywhere, including outside of the solar system.

Sunday is long run day. Long runs are a key workout for middle distance runners. There were some weeks when I really liked running long runs with my training partners. As I got fitter, I would like to run long runs with my daily trianing partners. Enjoy your long runs, find some cool places to run them. My college coach set up a loop in the Santa Cruz moutnains through old ghost towns.

LONDON (GBR): World Championships 4x100m gold medallist Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake has revealed he has been putting a focus on his start in training ahead of the 2018 season, informs Athletics Weekly. "My start has always been a point of emphasis, yes, but we're looking at some other stuff as well and we want to make a conscious effort to welcome that later in the season - though I can't reveal my secrets! There are one or two things we've got on the drawing board and some things that I can work on myself away from the track, now that I'm no longer at university, so I'm just trying to get better overall," he said.
