Haile Gebrselassie has wowed us for nearly two decades now. His Olympic and World Championship victories kept us on the edge of our seats. His 26 world records, including his 2:03.59 blew out minds. Tonight, at 7.10 PM Eastern time, we shall see if Haile is human after all. With three dnfs over the past 18 months in the marathon, Haile must run well, defined between 2:04 and 2:06 it sounds, to make the Ethiopian Olympic team. Check out the story in Lets'Run.

RBR will be at the USA Indoors this evening, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and tomorrow, at the Brooks PR invite, in Seattle, WA. This is an amazing weekend for track fans!
