Rio’s planned Olympic Park looks stunning.  Hope they can pull it off.

Calling this Outside The Lines feature on Eastern Michigan’s Latipha Cross “inspirational” would be an understatement.

The fastest marathoner never to run in the Olympics, Geoffrey Mutai, will be racing on September 30th in Berlin.

The Morning Run- May 14th

The Morning Run is a daily compilation of links, news and commentary.

On Saturday, we posted our interview with Adharanand Finn, the author of Running with the Kenyans.  If you haven’t yet listened, please do, especially if you are interested in what makes the Kenyans so dominant.  We will post our recap podcast for the Doha Diamond League, NCAA conference championships and much more tomorrow.

All of the results from the NCAA conference championships can be found here.

More in-depth conference recaps on the Big 12, SEC and the Pac 12.

Jesse Squires analyzes the attendance from the NCAA conference championships.

Ashton Eaton hurdles over a model.  A model wearing a $4,490 dress nonetheless.

Lashinda Demus: “we know that we are competing in a dying sport.”

Nike’s new speed suits feature “golf ball-inspired dimples” and claim to reduce times by .023 seconds over 100 meters.  By my math, that can be extrapolated out to 2.3 seconds for the 10,000 so look for skinny distance runners to start sporting the dimples.

Asafa Powell does what he normally does after he loses a race.  Also, Justin Gatlin calls Powell, “just a runner.”
