The New Balance indoor Grand Prix is a true sanctuary to the sport of indoor athletics. Held in the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury, Massachuesetts, the NB Indoor GP is 3 hours of the finest athletics in North America.
Why do I love it?
The 200m banked MONDO track just says fast. The crowd of 4,500 is so close to the track, that the fans can almost hear the athletes breathe. The pounding footsteps as the athletes pound around the track. The effort is obvious. Fans know that they are seeing the best of the best in the Reggie. I have missed one year in all of the years of the NB Indoor.
Each year has special moments. The intimacy, the effort, the close races and the enthusiasm of the fans involved everyone. You can not sit passively at this meet.
