INDIANAPOLIS - Alysia Montaño has been named USA Track & Field’s Athlete of the Week after setting an American record of 1:23.59 in the 600m at the Millrose Games in New York on Saturday.

Competing in the two-mile at his 12th Millrose Games, Bernard Lagat was two seconds off his planned pace of 4:04 for the mile, and remained in arrears on his splits for the entire race. Until the end.

Wearing cheetah-patterned spikes “designed” by his daughter Gianna, the 38-year-old Lagat pulled away from American 3000-meter steeplechase record-holder Evan Jager with two laps remaining and, in a gutsy solo effort, reclaimed his indoor American record from Galen Rupp when he broke the tape in 8:09.49. Rupp’s mark, set last year, was 8:09.72.

While I love fair weather running just as much as anyone, we have to take what we get and run no matter what. There is always a window of opportunity sometime during the day.

I talk about the weather often. It sounds like a cliche but “How’s the weather” is a very common conversation with me. It dictates when I am going to do training a lot.

I check the weather every day online. I do listen to the weather men but they are usually about as right as I am. I have found that going to weather.com and putting in my zip code and then checking hour by hour gives me best results.
