A night in Eugene...

There's so much to say about the last few days that honestly, I don't even know where to begin. It's after 3:00am, I just got back to our temporary home and Klim, Bain and I are supposedly running with the Brooks Team for an open group run in less than 5 hours.

Call these pictures a preview, a scintillating taste or simply a tease...but here are some of the sights from tonight's partying post Men's 10,000 Meter and Women's 5,000 Meter finals.

Welcome to Track Town USA!!

Jennifer Rhines (Women's 5K Silver Medal), Lauren Gabler, Jake Klim, Chris Bain and I.

Abdi Abdirahman (Men's 10K Gold Medal), Peter Silverman and I.

Amy Hastings (Women's 5K finals competitor) and Chris Bain

Further proof Abdi is a badass:

"My coach told me to go out strong at the start and make it a man's race and to get rid of the pretenders. I wanted to keep it at the 65 or 66 pace. I didn't want any of this 67 or 68 business. I was prepared for anything "
-Abdi Abdirahman on why he led nearly the entire 10k and outkicked Galen Rupp the final 200 to win the Olympic Trials
