The early part of the Eastern Relays was led off by impressive depth in the 3200 last night at the University of Louisville.
The Eastern Relays gets under way tonight at the University of Louisville. Annually this the top meet in Kentucky and it continues to grow more each year. Last year saw the huge Boys 3200m Run on Friday night with Jacob Thomson cracking 9 in the 3200 (first person on KY soil to do so) and a 39 runners going under the 10 minute mark. Tretez Kinnaird set a new pr in the 800 going under 1:50 for the first time. Danielle Pfeifer and Brannon Kidder from Ohio put up great displays in the 800 and 1600m. Katherine Receveur rolled in the 1600, Ronnie Baker 10.59/47 400 and that does not even cover the field events. That was all last year and this year could top that.

From Hopkinton to Boston more than a half a million people line the streets the third Monday in April, beginning their holiday by cheering the never-ending stream of runners that pass by. The women of Wellesley College know their place at the halfway mark. Their youthful enthusiasm provides the runners some mental fuel to make it to Boylston Street and the finish line at Copley Square that’s still 13-miles away. The bars and restaurants are crowded with people, most glued to this storied race pictured on the flat screens. The city is buzzing. Everyone is happy in Beantown. It’s Patriots Day, the date designated for the oldest and most-fabled 26.2-mile footrace in the world, the Boston Marathon.
After careful consideration and a long drawn out decision making process, I have decided it is time for me to retire from WVRunners and the Milesplit Network as Webmaster of WVRunners at the end of outdoor season. I have relocated and am no longer able to attend meets or give the State of West Virginia the coverage it deserves. I will be actively involved in looking for a suitable replacement to continue and to improve the site. If you are interested please contact me at email@example.com. You may also contact Don Rich, COO of Milesplit, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 610-662-6677.
