    Thanks for the link to the starting lists for tomorrow's Sound Running meet. But tomorrow there was supposed to be 2 meets, an American Track League meet around noon, and a separate Sound Running meet at night on the same track, just like they did last week.

    Are you saying that only the evening Sound Running meet will be happening?
    Following up on this, the American Track League meet did happen but it was just combined or partnered with the Sound Running Tour meet. I'm looking at the posts on social media and its confusing how they promoted it making it seem like 2 different meets. But there was 1 meet, held by Sound Running Tour + American Track League. The results gm posted are for that meet.

    Also, note, I've realized the ATL website is is not fully accurate. Follow their social media as they have held atleast 2 other meets already that are not listed on their website but have been promoted on their social media.

    That was his split at 4000m.

I just tried to find out who was competing in it, but I can't seem to find any information about the meet at all. Has it been cancelled?

    Will be even more surreal for an athlete to hear crowd noise, then look up and see an empty stadium. That's just weird.

    It does seem difficult to replicate the gasps and "oohs" and "aahs" you will get with an actual crowd.

    I can remember watching the 1991 Worlds in Tokyo on BBC TV and awaiting the start of the women's 10000 (won by Liz McColgan) and the start being delayed as the crowd were enormously excited by something. My immediate guess was that the LJ WR must have been broken, which was correct. If a WR is set in Tokyo this year it is unlikely to cause such a hubbub.

    I hesitate to call this T&F 'news', but the Jonas brothers tried to run the 100 Hurdles.

    The only problem I can imagine though is they may have dramatic crowd noise at the finish even in a non competitive race, so probably not truly authentic.
