    Dakotah Lindwurm (Guest), LOADED World Indoors Preview, Lyles Gets PAID

    The World Indoors are this weekend in Glasgow Scotland and LetsRun.com will be on site. We break down World Indoors before Dakotah Lindwurm, the breakout star from the US Olympic Marathon Trials, joins us at 76:19.

    World Indoors is loaded with Noah Lyles vs Christian Coleman at 60m, Josh Kerr vs Yared Nuguse vs Selemon Barega at 3000m, Cole Hocker vs Samuel Tefera vs Narve Nordås at 1500m, Laura Muir vs Gudaf Tsegay vs Elle St. Pierre at 3000m and a lot more.

    Noah Lyles got reportedly the richest contract in the sport since Usain Bolt and a 21-year-old Japanese collegian ran 2:06 in the marathon.

    Yes & Yes: Kerr and Hocker, RIP Henry Rono, Mo Katir suspended

    Josh Kerr is running World Indoors vs Yared Nuguse and Selemon Barega.

    Cole Hocker was sublime in the 1500m at the USATF Champs. Are Kerr and Hocker favorites for Gold in Glasgow?

    Noah Lyles took down Christian Coleman, what does that do to his gold medal chances? Meanwhile Letsile Tebogo broke the 300m world record.

    We break it all down, pay our respects to Henry Rono, talk about a great guest article by Andy Hardt on Kelvin Kiptum, and have our thread of the week: Could you beat a random American for $1 million with your life on the line?

    RIP Kelvin Kiptum, Millrose Games Grades, LOADED USATF Indoors Preview

    RIP Kelvin Kiptum, Millrose Games Grades, LOADED USATF Indoors Preview

    The running world tragically lost one of its brightest lights, Kelvin Kiptum, the world record holder in the marathon, the man who in 10 months revolutionized how the marathon can be run, tragically passed away at the age of 24. We pay our respects.

    Then we turn to an amazing 2024 Millrose Games where Devynne Charlton started things off by breaking the world record in the 60m hurdles but the highlight was Josh Kerr running 8:00.67 to break the 2-mile world record and take down Grant Fisher, plus American records by Ellie St. Pierre, a big run by Yared Nuguse, Hobbs Kessler and even Cole Hocker. Plus, Alicia Monson broke an American record and Rojo wasn't that impressed.

    We break it all down and then take a look at a stacked USATF Indoors.
