The second Day of the US Champs had two amazing 3,000 meter races, with Bernard Lagat running one of the fastest ever for a US champs, and a stirring final lap by Gabe Grunewald. In an unfortunate turn of events, several protests were fired, and at this time, Gabe Grunewald, formerly Gabe Anderson, seems to have had her first US championships taken away. Kudos to Brooks shoes for going on the record to giving Gabe her Brooks bonus for winning a US championships.
Dave Monti, as usual, writes a thoughtful piece, filling in the blanks for those of us who could not be in Albuquerque this weekend.
