This is my daily chat with #RunBlogRun viewers and track fans on all things track & field!

This is Coffee with Larry for Thursday, December 28, 2023.

Our topics today:

1. What were my Moments, for the Months of 2023?
a. One moment a month!
b. One correction, I put #DubaiMarathon in Jan 2023, when it was Feb 2023 (in 2024, it is Jan 7, 2024).
c. For Feb 2023, it was the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix.
d. For March 2023, it was the amazing World Cross Country!
e. In April 2023, it was the 2023 Boston Marathon and 2023 London Marathon.
f. In May 2023, it was, for me, the 2023 USATF LA Grand Prix, finally a meet back in La La Land.
g. In June 2023, it was the USATF NYC Grand Prix, great fan zone, Noah Lyles did THE WALK.
h. In July 2023, it was the USATF Champs, in Hayward, and it was most excellent.
i. In August 2023, it was the World Champs in Budapest, the finest that I have attended.
j. In Sept 2023, it was the Berlin Marathon and Tigist Assefa going 2:11.53.
k. In October 2023, it was Kelvin Kiptum setting WR and Sifan Hassan setting ER.
l. In November 2023, Tamarat Tola sets CR and Hellen Obiri goes for the win in NYC Marathon.
m. In December, NXN and FootLocker bring our year to a fine close.
My suggestion: Why does World Athletics not give WC each year to Fukuoka Marathon? It is iconic and would have 500,000 fans on the course? And, it would be cool!

See you tomorrow with #CoffeeWithLarry
