The recent 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials were one of the most successful ever. Time will tell how the 2012 US track & field team will be rated, but, from all indications, the team is superb.
To provide you easy access to our Runblogrun coverage, with the work of six tremendous writers, and our photography team at PhotoRun.net, we are posting, day by day, the links to all pieces so that you can enjoy all of the excitement of the Trials, as you prepare to watch London 2012!View items...
In my travels I have found that one of the best ways to enjoy a new city (or a familiar one, too) is to run it. Running allows you to see a great deal in a short amount of time, but also retain the intimacy of being in the middle of it all. With a few exceptions, traveling on foot is the only way to get up-close-and-personal to a city. Although running through a crowded city center can really be a pain for both you and other pedestrians, many of the best sights are removed from such downtown areas. These normally tourist clogged areas which are also filled with locals going about their business can be thoroughly savored in the early morning hours, before businesses open and camera-laden tour groups form giant blobs around the best sights.
