We stole away for a weekend to go to the USA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Aluquerque, NM. The winners and runners-up will represent the US in the World Indoor Track and Field Championships in Sopot, Poland in March. So, sort of like the Olympics trials. Actually we saw a lot of reigning Olympic (outdoor) and World Champions (indoor and outdoor). Going to this is like going to Spring Training baseball, very small venue and we were very close to all the events. A picture-taking utopia for Don. If you are not into Track and Field you are probably yawning by now, but we got to see some all-stars that we have watched on tv – like Bernard Lagat, Ryan Whiting, and Ajee Wilson. In the 10th picture, the girl in black in second is Mary Cain, who won the 1500 m race for the second year in a row. She is 17. Seriously?!? You know the colleges are recruiting her.
