PORTLAND (USA): Galen Rupp's participation in a half marathon at the weekend sparked speculation that he may run the US Olympic Marathon Trials. However, Oregon Project head coach Alberto Salazar told RunnersWorld, "Galen wants to keep all his options open. "No commitments one way or the other."

Editor's note: A nice run by Galen Rupp on Sunday with his run in a local half marathon in 61:20. Galen has run 60:30 with competition. This shows a high level of fitness, and should be an indication that his training for 2016 is coming along fine. While it sure would be fun to watch Galen Rupp run in the 2016 Trials Marathon, not sure that will happen.
