Fun in the sun in Bydgoszcz...

BYDGOSZCZ, Poland--Another sunny day in Bydgoszcz greeted members of Team USA as several of them informally toured the course in preparation for Sunday's IAAF World Cross Country Championships.

Several other members took the opportunity to run along the forest trails in the park, while others did sharpening work on the nearby track stadium where the 2008 IAAF World Junior Track & Field Championships were held, including 2008 Olympic 10000-meter bronze medalist Shalane Flanagan of the Oregon Track Club Elite/Portland.

On the course, workers continued laying down dirt on parts of the course that were beaten up at the Polish national cross country championships a few weeks ago.

Here's a video interview I did with Washington State University freshman Andrew Kimpel (left/photo by Paul Merca) from Spokane's North Central High School, who finished fourth at the USA Championships last month to earn the trip to Poland.
