We are here!

EUGENE--Just a quick note to the readership that we arrived here in Eugene a little before noon, and promptly went into a meeting here at Hayward Field.

After our meeting concluded (I am also working for NBC Sports), I went out onto the field just to check out various athletes going through their workouts on the facility. In the photo posted above, sprinter Lauryn Williams gets in some block work as she prepares for the rounds of the 100 meters which start Friday.

I had to drop off a case of Northwest Runner magazines to the guys at the Brooks house, and to the gang at the Villard Street Pub, where the Running Network folks are set up.

Oh yeah, while at the Brooks house, the Flotrack "White Pearl" van pulled in...if any of you have been watching their video blogs, the "White Pearl" ran into some trouble in New Mexico en route to Eugene from Austin, Texas.

The Olympic Trials are like a class reunion--everyone wants to talk to everyone, and if you're not careful, you may be stuck talking or listening to various stories for a LOOONG while!

Had dinner tonight with Track & Field News' editor Garry Hill and Kevin Saylors, who is Garry's long-time designated spotter whenever Garry plays announcer. I asked Garry tips on how I can be a better announcer at Husky home meets, and traded battle stories.

Looking forward to getting the coverage started here!
