I have watched Chris Thompson run since 2009. He has runs some amazing races, including two big races in Palo Alto. Thommo has been challenged by both competitors and injuries. His sense of humor is exceptional.

Chris Thompson is the 2010 European silver medalist at the 10,000 meters. He is back in UK training and looking for the perfect, or near perfect race.

Please check out his Instagram posting on his race today!
