Off to Edinburgh!

After spending a few days here in Athens, the world tour resumes with a stop in Edinburgh for the IAAF World Cross Country Championships!

As always, the speculation runs rampant on whether Ethiopia's Kenenisa Bekele can retain his crown as world cross country champ after his showing in Mombasa last year, or whether or not Zersanay Tadese from Eritrea is the real deal in cross country.

Holyrood Park will not be the usual manicured horse racing track/golf course venue used as in the last few editions of the will be a true European style cross country course, with a sharp and allegedly muddy hill at the end of each loop.

The weather report projects temperatures in the mid-40s, or very Seattle-like weather.Looking forward to sending reports from Scotland!
