Larry’s Deep Thoughts:

One of the things I learned in training and racing for fifteen years, then coaching for twelve years, and then observing for twenty-five more years is the following;

Too many athletes leave their best races on the workout track.

I stand somewhere between keeping the workouts really easy and keeping the workouts really, really hard.

Over the weekend, I witnessed one of the finest mile races I have ever seen!

Josh Kerr won the Bowerman Mile, and he did it in a gutty way, from six hundred meters out.

To be successful in our sport, one must know its history. Danny Mackey, Josh Kerr’s coach, obviously knows the sport’s history. They had discussed Josh moving to the front with 600m to go. This requires a huge amount of strength and confidence.

Josh Kerr, Yared Nuguse and Jakob Ingebrigtsen will meet again soon, the battle royale is on!
