LetsRun.com's Track Talk

There was a ton to talk about this week as the Diamond League has returned and Shaunae Miller-Uibo’s unbeaten streak has passed the two year mark. We spend a ton of time talking about how exciting and wide-open Worlds are going to be this year with few huge mid-d or distance favorites. Plus Craig Engels may miss the DL final because he has to go to a wedding, Max Burgin gets rave reviews for bombing in Birmingham, an American man has won the Falmouth Road Race for the 1st time since 1988, Nike says it won’t reduce a woman’s sponsorship deal for 8 months before giving birth and 10 months after, the Kenyan 10,000 Trials are in the books, and will Alexa Efraimson finally PR in 2020? And even a little ultra talk at the end. Full show notes with time stamps appear below our sponsor plugs. Need new running shoes?
