This past weekend the Prefontaine Classic Track Meet took place and it was also the Diamond League Finals for the outdoor track and field season. Eugene comes alive when track arrives, hence the nickname, “Tracktown, USA.” It really is a track town.

The fella who set the new US record in the mile run, Yared Naguse, was on his high school bowling team. Then he ran the timed mile for PE and the PE teacher had the track coach take a look. Here we are. Solid running all the way around.
