  • Time for Vin Lananna, USATF to get on the same page

  • Seven questions with 2018 USATF Indoor 800m gold medalist Donavan Brazier

    Seven questions with 2018 USATF Indoor 800m gold medalist Donavan Brazier

    RunBlogRun, 1) How did you get into the Sport?

    Donavan Brazier: "I got into running at a very young age. Like the rest of the elementary school kids at the time, twice a year we would have to run a mile. At the time, running a mile, seemed like a marathon. We would run this mile and year after year I would come in first and improve my times. So I always knew that I could be good at running because of early indicators like that. I didn't get into track though, until about 8th grade when I was placed in the 800m event. I wasn't the best at the time, even struggling to make the 4X8 relay. But as I developed more going into high school, my freshman and sophomore year I really started to get the swing of things."
