LetsRun.com Weekly
Clear your calendars for this evening. If you're a track fan (the fact that you subscribe to this newsletter suggests this is the case), you are going to be busy starting at 9:00 p.m. ET tonight watching one of the greatest three-hour stretches of track & field all year: NCAA men's finals day.

It's everything that makes the sport great: genuine stakes, tons of talented athletes, unpredictability, and incredible performances. If you have other plans this evening, at the very least you owe it to yourself to set your DVR (it's on ESPN2) and enjoy it tomorrow. And make sure you tune in for the women on Saturday as well (5:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

And if you missed the first two days of competition from Eugene, don't worry. We've got you covered below.
