2020 is gone, and it's time to look ahead to a new year. We know that flipping the calendar to January 1 is not a panacea. COVID-19 is still very real, and the world isn't going to look normal again for a little while (at least). But vaccines are rolling out. 2021 has to be better than 2020, right?
We hope so. Because there's a lot to (hopefully) look forward to. Here's a taster:
-The best track meet in the United States -- the Olympic Trials -- at the brand new Hayward Field -The Olympics in Tokyo -The busiest fall marathon season ever -TWO NCAA XC championships
Will all of those events be held? And if they are, will fans be allowed? No one can say for sure yet. But it's a lot more fun to think about what might be than what might not be.
Though 2020 featured fewer races than normal, we had plenty to talk about as we cranked out 68 episodes of the LetsRun.com Track Talk Podcast. We landed some incredible guests including an Olympic gold medalist, a Boston Marathon champion, a world record holder, and one of the most popular authors on the planet. A look at eight of our best episodes of 2020.
