This is part two of A Day in the Life of Mo Farah and Galen Rupp, filmed in April 2013 and first shown in August 2013 during the Moscow World Champs. It was filmed in Portland courtesy of Alberto Salazar and the IAAF, with the filming done by The Shoe Addicts. The visit to Moscow was important for me, as I had been trying to go since 1972, when I was offered a month working on a collective farm. My mother refused to allow me to go then, but wrote me a note in 2013, telling me that she was please that I was finally in Russia, post Soviet Union, and it had only taken 41 years. So, was I. I loved my visit to Moscow, the history, the people and the stadium.
We visited Mo Farah and Galen Rupp, along with Matt Centrowitz and Cam Levin, in April. On April 13, 2013, thanks to the graciousness of Alberto Salazar, we spent a day observing and asking questions.
On August 10, 2013, Mo Farah defeated his nemesis, Ibrahim Jeilan over the last 200 meters to win the 10,000m title that had eluded him in 2011. Galen Rupp finished fourth after fighting a tough battle for third, improving from his sixth in Daegu. His fourth place improved the highest finish by an American in the 10,000 ever (his sixth was the best before).
Mo Farah and Galen Rupp are training partners. Here is the second A Day in the Life, Mo Farah & Galen Rupp, part deux, courtesy of the IAAF. This video was prepared by the Shoe Addicts, the digital partners of RunBlogRun.com.
