New Episode is up with @shelbo800 Shelby Houlihan where we discuss her recent 1500M victory at Prefontaine, which Harry Potter house all of her teammates would be in, her never ending French Bread Friday battle with @steeple_squigs Colleen Quigley and French Braid Friday, and so much more. Shelby, a.k.a. Patches was an absolute blast to talk to.

It’s hard to find the words to express how much this place has meant to me. It’s been 40 years since my dad first brought me here to see a dual meet between Oregon and Washington State. In the ensuing 40 years, whether it be to train, compete, or spectate I would return thousands of times and it never, ever lost its magic. It ran the gamut from all-comers meets to state championships to #prefontaineclassic to the #olympictrials and most importantly my last race with my dad. Every second on the Stevenson track and in the stands of #haywardfield have been a #privilege and I cherish those memories of this special place that has become a home away from home for me. #trackandfield #tracktownusa #haywardfield #homeofchampions #worldchampionships2021
These adventures were a lot of fun! Great to explore more of the beautiful state of Oregon. Now it’s back to the real world. #paintedhills #craterlake #oregoncoast #newportoregon #prefontaineclassic #adventures #camping

Finally uploaded the photos from the #preclassic on Saturday! Absolutely surreal meeting the German throws team. No big deal just the Olympic gold medalist, current world champ, and about the biggest guy I’ve ever seen. These guys have been my heroes for years! Each has PR of over 91m. Got a great shot of my idol @thomasroehler hitting his 89m throw, also got a nice chat in with him after the meet. Probably one of the top days of my life so far, even if I look like such a goof in these photos. As always repping that #javworld shirt.

Enjoyed watching a few televised track meets the last couple of weeks. The Adidas Boost Boston Games and the Prefontaine Classic were the two I watched which made me realize track and field is really missing human freak show Usain Bolt! The multi world record holder with an insane 9.58 100 meter time and a an equally insane 19.19 200 meter time which both may never be matched was so fun to watch. There is scientific research that said humans would not reach 9.60 in the 100 meter dash until the year 2030. Usain broke that record in 2009 👀
As a long distance runner who does not fit the mold, I always found inspiration in Pre’s story. Even though he didn’t look like your stereotypical distance runner, he dominated the nation and ran the gutsiest race at the 1972 Olympics. His short life was filled of success and ultimately created a path for so many runners like myself to explore. Thank you, Pre. 💚Never forgotten. 05/30/1975
DIBABA RUNS WORLD 5000M LEAD; KIGEN MAY BE KENYA’S NEWEST RISING STAR IN STEEPLE - — M STEEPLE In Eugene, we saw the best time of the year be run in the men’s 3000m steeplechase. Benjamin Kigen was relatively unknown before running at the PreClassic on Saturday, where he won in an 8:09.07 PB & WL over 2016 Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto and silver medalist Evan Jager (both 8:11.71 SB), after sprinting around the track in a 57.8 the final lap. The race showed Kigen may be in the chase with a handful of men trying to go sub-8:00 this year, which hasn’t been done since July of 2015. — - RACE SPLITS - [KEN 🇰🇪] BENJAMIN KIGEN’S WL 3000M STEEPLE AT EUGENE DL (🇺🇸) ・・ 1st/2nd 1500m: 4:05.0 / 4:04.0 = 8:09.07 ・・ Kilometer Splits: 2:41.7 / 2:48.1 / 2:39.2 ・ 1-3km Splits: 2:41.7 | 5:29.8 | 8:09.0 ・・ Final Lap: 57.8!!! ・・・・ Averages: (65.2/400m) (2:43.0/km) (4:20.8/mi) ••• CV: ~7.0 = 8:02.0 –3.0 = 7:59.0 - — W 5000M Genzebe Dibaba, the 2018 world 3000m & 1500m indoor champion, tore up the track in a 14:26.89 for the first sub-15:00 clocking on the year in her usual Prefontaine Classic event, the women’s 5000m. With conditions difficult, the pace hovered around 2:55 per kilometer before she left behind young Ethiopian compatriot Letesenbet Gidey (14:30.29 PB) and 2017 world champion Hellen Obiri (14:35.03 SB), closing her last lap in 61.7. This was a good show of fitness from Dibaba, who will be looking to break her older sister Tirunesh’s WR of 14:11.15 later in the season. — - RACE SPLITS - [ETH 🇪🇹] GENZEBE DIBABA’S WL 5000M AT EUGENE DL (🇺🇸) ・・ 1st/2nd 2500m: 7:19.6 / 7:07.2 = 14:26.89 ・・ Kilometer Splits: 2:53.4 / 2:59.4 / 2:52.5 / 2:55.0 / 2:46.5 ・ 1-5km Splits: 2:53.4 | 5:52.8 | 8:45.3 | 11:40.3 | 14:26.8 ・ Mile Splits: 4:40.0 / 4:40.2 / 4:36.2 ・・ Final Mile: 4:32.1 Final 800: 2:11.5 Final Lap: 61.7!!! ・・・・ Averages: (69.3/400m) (2:53.3/km) (4:37.4/mi) ••• CV: ~10.0 = 14:17.0 –7.0 = 14:10.0 - — #eugenedl #diamondleague #preclassic #prefontaine #prefontaineclassic #5000m #steeplechase #steeple #milesplit #letsrun #flotrack #usatf #runnerspace #goat #nikeplus #justdoit #nikerunning #tracknation #trackandfield #track #raceday #trackday #running #runners #run
Steve Prefontaine died on this day back in 1975. As a person who benefited directly from running as a young man in high school, Pre personified discipline, dedication and fearlessness, traits taught to me by my coaches. Pre viewed running as a gift, never wanting talent wasted. He demanded a lot from himself and those around him, simplifying life to training for both glory as an Oregon Duck and a United States Olympian. “The confident young man from Coos Bay, Oregon,” as Pre was described before the 5,000 meters in Munich. Pre lives today in the hearts of countless distance runners around the globe, especially here in the #riftvalleyspokane GSL xc and track. If Pre were alive today, I’m pretty sure he’d be giving back to the sport that brought him so much joy. Though I’m no longer coaching, my message has always been one of giving back to our beautiful sport. Coach, volunteer, donate shoes, give back to the running community, especially to middle and high school kids. Get your run in today and then give back in the spirit of Steve Prefontaine. 🙏🏻 #pre #prelives #ducks #goducks #gopre #hayward #tracktownusa #nike #cvxc #gsl #xc #nxn #nxr #pattyson #guxc #oregonxc #oregontrack #haywardfield #eugeneoregon #presrock #gopre #stoppre #prefontaineclassic #steveprefontaine
We saw the #PrefontaineClassic unfold before us last week in Oregon, as record-breaking numbers were held at the University May 25 and 26. Last year Ryan Crouser set the #shotput record for the event @ 22.43M competing for the #USA !

Endlich wieder zurück zu Hause. Nach einem nicht so gutem Ergebnis bei #prefontaineclassic geht es jetzt Richtung Osterode!
Super happy I got to watch the last #prefontaineclassic in the #historichaywardfield 🏃
Crater Lake was absolutely majestic. Neither of us expected it to be this big, or this blue. We had planned on several epic hikes but did not realize that every hike but one were all still snowed in for the season. The only hike we could do was a 10 mile walk to and back from the short hike, and by the time we figured that out, we decided to stick to the roads and head on to our next stop. It was still amazing and worth a visit, but we will be back!
Flex, tongue out, wipe the dirt off your shoulder - You can do that when you break the meet record and have the fastest time in the world this year. 1:55.92 in the 800m. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #PreClassic #PrefontaineClassic #CasterSemenya #800m #PREFONTAINE  #DiamondLeague #Diamond #DLEugene #EugeneDL #EugeneDL #TrackChampionships #TrackandField #TrackNation #Sports #SportsPhotography #TrackNation #FloTrack #RunnerSpace #Dyestat #Athletics #IAAFWorlds  #HaywardField #Hayward #Running #Canon #Canon70200

Running their 2018 Diamond League debuts, Baker finished strongly in a windy 9.78, a time we could expect may come wind legally later this season, as Coleman ran 9.84 in his first outdoor race of the year. - — WOMEN’S 100M RESULTS (+1.9) (+2.0)** (+0.0)** 10.88 10.87 10.99 🇨🇮 CIV Marie-Josée TA LOU 10.90 10.89 11.01 🇨🇮 CIV Murielle AHOURÉ 10.98 10.97 11.09 🇯🇲 JAM Elaine THOMPSON — Bowie, the reigning world champ, was the American hope in this race but it was Ivory Coast’s Ahouré and Ta Lou, who went 1-2 at world indoors, shinning bright in this event. - — MEN’S 200M RESULTS (+2.0) (+1.0)** (+0.0)** 19.69 19.75 19.83 🇺🇸 USA Noah LYLES 20.05 20.10 20.18 🇹🇹 TTO Jereem RICHARDS 20.07 20.12 20.19 🇨🇦 CAN Aaron BROWN — Lyles, the 2017 Diamond League champ, had great success this year winning the 200m event in world #10 A-T 19.69.

Her fastest split ended up being the first 100m and she smoothly maintained 12 second pace all the way around the track.

SHELBY HOULIHAN SHATTERS 4-MINUTES TO BEAT INCREDIBLY TOUGH 1500M FIELD IN EUGENE - — The Bowerman athlete, who has earned 5 U.S. titles over the last couple years, claimed victory in a 3:59.06 WL on Saturday over pre-race favorites world indoors and outdoors silver medalists Laura Muir (GBR - 3:59.30 SB) and Jenny Simpson (USA - 3:59.36 SB). Her closing speed of 28.9 over the final 200 and last lap of 59.8 moved her up from 9th place at the bell to the very top of the podium against a deep PreClassic field. Houlihan’s win makes her the 5th fastest U.S. woman ever and just the 4th to have a Diamond League victory in the event. The 25-year-old American grabbed 4th and 5th place finishes at world indoors in the 1500m and 3000m but now has the world leading time in 2018. It is clear she could go even faster and has the potential to break Shannon Rowbury’s AR of 3:56.29, set in Monaco of 2015, later this year. Her race on Saturday yields a 3:54.0 conversion for pacing and wind effect after my analysis of the run, superior to the 3:54.5 CV Rowbury earned in her record-breaking race. Close competitors Muir and Simpson both collected 3:55.0 CV’s with their races, the latter now making it TWO Americans with good potential to break the AR this year. Not far back in 6th place was Australian Linden Hall, who broke the continental record with 4:00.86, improving Sarah Jamieson’s 12-year-old mark of 4:00.93 set in Stockholm. — - RACE SPLITS - [USA 🇺🇸] SHELBY HOULIHAN’S WL/PB 1500M AT EUGENE DL (🇺🇸) ・・ (1500m) 3:59.06 —> (Mile) 4:18.19** ・・ [400] 1:04.7 | 64.7 [800] 2:10.6 | 65.9 [1200] 3:15.0 | 64.4 [1500] 3:59.0 | 44.0 ・・ Final 800: 2:04.6 Final Lap: 59.8!!! ・・・・ Averages: (63.7/400m) (2:39.3/km) (4:16.4/mi) ••• CV: ~3.5 = 3:55.5 –1.5 = 3:54.0 –> 4:12.5** - — 📸: @diamondleagueathletics #eugenedl #diamondleague #preclassic #1500m #prefontaineclassic #bowermanbabes #milesplit #letsrun #flotrack #usatf #runnerspace #worlderunners #worldrunners #goat #nikeplus #justdoit #nikerunning #tracknation #trackandfield #track #raceday #runnershigh #runnerslife #tracklife #trackday #runner #run #runners #running
Su Bingtian of China “SU- Per” fast! 9.92!! But DANG a tad too much tailwind!!! SU let’s out a roar and falls to his knees upon seeing his time and the wind. His PR was 9.99 the 9.90 would have been a new Personal, National, and Asian record.

You may beat me one day, @mondo_duplantis but you can’t beat this.
No experience has defined the word "bittersweet" quite like this past weekend's #prefontaineclassic . An excellent meet, as always. Superb performances, knowledgeable patrons, all in a beautiful haven. It's heartbreaking to see what is planned for this amazing place. I am a realist, yes, and a part of me is able to understand. But I'm saddened terribly from a personal standpoint; it feels that my memories are being torn down, too. When I was a kid living in Eugene-Springfield, my dad was a long jump official and would take us to Hayward Field for every home track and field meet. One day, I asked him if I could help, too. I was probably 10 years old. He consulted, and sure enough, I was welcomed to the long jump crew. I did anything they asked, whether it was holding the flags, changing the reader board, or shoveling out the pit. Our days work was always met with a free burger from the OTC tent and a hot chocolate from the storage shed. I grew up at this hallowed ground. This past weekend was special. It was a meet I wasn't sure I'd be attending, but it's important to make lemonade out of lemons. We sat in the second row of the storied #EastGrandstand . They were great seats with views and athlete access found nearly nowhere else in track and field. It was really neat. Perhaps the lasting moment for me was actually after the historic (and record-breaking) Bowerman Mile had concluded, signalling the conclusion of the meet. A group of then-strangers (now my East Grandstand loving "brothers and sisters") hung around long afterwards and said our proper goodbyes to the place. We shared memories and stories, we spoke in bitterness, and we reflected in love. These are my people. It's so hard to say goodbye to this place, at least as I know it, as I grew up with it. But I am glad I was able to do it properly, in-person, at the greatest track meet in the world. And I'm so happy to have been able to share it with @ab_reed13.
Not bad, Tracktown, USA. Channeling my inner Jenny Simpson, Alexi Pappas, and Cory McGee. We missed the Prefontaine Classic by one day, but it was still pretty awesome to run around this historic track.

I spent 4 years of college saying good morning to this statue of Bill Bowerman as I parked my bike and headed to work in the Bowerman Building or to classes nearby. ✨ Coming to the Pre Classic this weekend is as much of saying goodbye to Hayward and the Bowerman building as it is to support my athletes. ✨ Always love being here, it feels just as much as home as my actual hometown, though it is always bittersweet to see it change. ✨ So many memories are held within the gates of Hayward field, in that building, in the grand stands, on that corner of 15th and Agate. ✨ Such is the cycle of life: birth, growth, living, experiencing, memories, and death leading to it all over again. Creation. Newness. Beautiful to witness. Always excited for the future and looking forward to another couple days of memories built in this old gem! . . . . . #athletictraining #sportsmedicine #movementismedicine #usatf #diamondleague #prefontaine #prefontaineclassic #preclassic #universityoforegon #goducks #bowermanbuilding #bowermanmile #nikehistory #philknight #collegememories #haywardfield #iaaf #trackandfield #athletictrainer #sportsrehab #sportshealth
