LetsRun.com Weekly
What a weekend of track we have on tap.

Honestly, it's weekends like this that the author of this newsletter is grateful LetsRun.com exists. How else to keep track of NCAA regionals, the Doha Diamond League, and pro meets this weekend in Portland, Jacksonville, and Boston?

Fortunately we're here and we'll be covering all the action, from Shelby Houlihan and Lopez Lomong's return to racing (plus a cameo from Galen Rupp) at the Portland Track Festival to Emma Coburn's return to the steeple in Doha and everything in between. Thank goodness this weekend has an extra day to fit it all in.

We could tease these meets further...or you could just read our previews below. We suggest the latter. Enjoy the weekend.
