Withdrawal from the Olympic Trials has been setting in since returning from Eugene and coming down from the adrenaline rush. Part of that is because eight days is a long time sleeping on a hotel mattress, and I have finally gotten some good sleep since returning home.
I've found myself communicating with colleagues that shared the Eugene experience because we shared something very special in Eugene '08, which turned out to be a de facto track and field national holiday.
What is there not to miss? Eight days of riveting action on the track, coupled with an exhilarating atmosphere. The days were spent comparing and contrasting athletes of today and the past, while interviewing the world's best track athletes about the greatest sport on the planet.
Here are a few pictures of the athletes and the action.
