Justin Lagat provided this feature on the Kip Keino Classic, which happened today in Nairobi, Kenya, ending the 2021 Continental Tour season globally.

This is a tough workout. If you race today, then do a 30 minute run, at moderate pace, and 4-6 stride outs.

The mile is a most satisfying event. It is the event most run in high schools (or 1,600m, or 1,500m) that introduces many to middle distance running. Will Leer has run a 3:51 mile.

Conversations with Larry,

Thoughts on the 2021 Wanda Diamond League Season

Convos with Larry is a program where Larry speak is the prevailing language. I am highly caffenated, the limits on my verbosity are ten minutes, or Mike uses a remote taser and I leap out of my chair and the hummingbirds dancing around my head are startled (no animals are ever harmed in the shooting of this series. Although the tailless lizard that hisses at me in the back yard sounds like my junior year French language teacher, who eloquently, in French, spoke of the good old days, when he could beat students with a bamboo stick when they forgot the conjunctive. Oh, for the good old days...

******************************************************************

Truly one of the gems of the Continental Tour, the Memorial Borisa Hanžekovića, held in Zagreb, Croatia, is a favorite end-of-season meeting in Croatia. It also is end of Continental Tour in Europe (Kip Keino Classic in Nairobi ends global Cont Tour).

Devon Allen had one of the finest performances in Zagreb, with his first sub 13 second time for the 110m hurdles, but Ryan Crouser put his shot all the way to 22.84m, his farthest throw in Europe ever!

What a season ender!
