  • Things I'm Thankful For in 2003

    In this holiday season I'd like to share a list of a few things in T&F that I am greatful for in 2003 and invite others to share there list as well.

    1) The WC Mens 5000m (what a race)
    2) Paula Ratcliffe's breakthrough marathon WR
    3) Paul Tergat's mens Marathon WR the first sub 2:05
    4) Bekele & Gebs sub 13:00 last 5k in the WC 10k
    5) H. Gebreselassie still producing at the top after so many years.
    6) The internet and the easy availability and almost instaneousness of results from around the world
    7) This chat room and its wide variety of opinions and the diversity of its posters.
    8) The anticipation of the Olympics, Olympic trials and everything that an Olympic year brings.

    Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg. Please share your list.

      Trying to rid the sport of drugs.

      Here's to a clean Olympics! I don't even care if the performance level is way down - I just want an honest competition.

      No "It'll never happen" replies, thank you. It's my wish.
