Nice to see 3 Americans in Metz.

Now, how do I get there when I'm in Wisconsin? How will the border authorities in Europe think my alibi that I must see indoor athletics

be taken?

Also, Mike Rodgers is not only an exciting athlete to watch race but also a avorite interview subject. Check out this one, done in Madrid Indoor

in 2019: https://www.runblogrun.com/2019/02/mike-rodgers-interview-in-madrid-with-larry-eder-runblogrun.html

Friday is an easy day. Keep it easy. Keep it light. The body needs to stay healthy.

The Olympics is a close to a global religion that we actually have.

Sports transcends the activity and it gives many something to cheer about. And the seven billion people on this planet, having dealt with the pandemic in 2020, would sure like to see an Olympics in 2021. The sad thing is, with current medical knowledge and innoculations, it may be impossible to hold the Olympics without a huge loss of life.

The issue is this. Can Tokyo hold an Olympics, with COVID 19, and the challenges we currently have? The IOC is steadfast, with Thomas Bach saying 'it will happen'. So does Seb Coe, head of Wold Athletics, qualifying that it will 'happen in some form". Yet, up to 80 percent of the people in Japan have noted that they would like to see it cancelled in 2021.

The athletes want to compete, as they have been waiting almost a year now.

What does the IOC do?

The American Track League is a big deal. It gives track geeks a chance to see athletics and athletes a chance to compete. The opening meet will have women's HJ and men's 400m among the six events.

This is Hill day #2. Hills build us many ways. The key is to stay consistent, and to take the easy days easy and hard days hard. Stay aware.
