| 0 Comments

Early season racing is a lot of fun. I recall my brother running his best mile in all comers, then running a big 400 m PB afterwards, it was a lot of fun to watch! Run a relay and have some fun, get in some speed work and try a shorter or longer distance than you normally do! And, also, watch the USATF Indoors today and tomorrow!
