As I’ve already posted on my Facebook page and on this blog’s Facebook page, I will be heading to Guiyang, China to cover the IAAF World Cross Country Championships starting on Tuesday, the 24th.
My niece Krista Merca (above) will be managing the content of the blog while I’m away.
This is a new challenge for me, as I’m going to a country that has restrictions on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and even blogspot, of which this blog falls under.
We will do our best to update the site, given the restrictions I’m faced with. We may or may not be able to post recaps of meets involving the state’s Division I and II schools from China—I will encourage you to visit the track and field web sites of our state’s colleges and universities while I’m away. Additionally, results will be posted at tfrrs.org.
One last thing—I will be writing updates for USA Track & Field while in Guiyang, China at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships, so I strongly suggest visiting usatf.org for more information about Team USA at the championships, including the three athletes with Washington connections on the squad—Eastern Washington alum Mattie Suver, Tacoma resident Brie Felnagle, and Mt. Spokane HS senior John Dressel.
See you on the other side of the world!
