RunblogRun: Berlin WC 2009 Starts August 15! by Larry Eder


Dear readers,

I am getting ready to close up the computer, and head to my flight to Munich, then Berlin, for the 2009 IAAF World Outdoor championships in Berlin. I arrive in Berlin mid day on Thursday and will be heading to a several press conferences late in the day.

We began coverage of our meets on the web in 1996, on RBR in 2007 and with twitter in 2008. We look forward, as you do, to some amazing performances. Right off the bat, I am predicting world records in both the 100 meters and 200 meters, but not necessarily by the same person. More on that when I land!
