17 August

I hope you're all enjoying the Athletics World Championships in Berlin. Thanks to EuroSport, I'm having a great time watching the events. How can you not when you have a superhuman performance by Bolt (9.58 WR), an awesome all-around athlete like Jessica Ennis in the Heptathlon, and Kenenisa Bekele running a 55-second last lap to defend his world title in 26:46.

At the same time, the Americans aren't doing too bad. Some good and noticeable performance include: Tyson Gay running 9.71 for a new American record (he was still a distance back from Bolt....Unbeleivable!). Jenny Barringer continues to run great as she placed 5th breaking her own AR by almost 10 seconds in the steeple. Ritz ran very well with a new 10K PR in 27:22 for 6th. And, we have 3 Americans (Lagat, Manzano & Lomong) that will be in the 1500m final.

Today: AM - 5M @ 7:22 pace; PM - 6M @ 7:07 pace
