I have finally made the trek to track and field mecca with my press credentials in hand. I am working with TheFinalsprint.com to provide live blogging during the meet. Check out PreraceJitters.com for all the my behind-the-scenes run down, such as what legends attend the meet. Or who loses their cool after a disappointing race.
So far it has been everything it's cracked up to be. The superbowl of track and field in the United States. The meet, albeit extremely long (June 27 to July 6), will be show on television.
TV Schedule – all times are Eastern; subject to change; please make sure to check local listing before the running begins.
