The Marathon Olympic Trials are set to begin Saturday morning, January 14, in downtown Houston, with the men's race starting at 8:00am and the women just behind them at 8:15am. The start is on Avenida de las Americas and first follows a 2.2-mile "inner loop" through downtown, then an 8-mile "outer loop" three times for 26.2 miles total. Would be great to be a spectator, wouldn't it? You would get to see them pass by quite a few times. Wish I could be there!
has its predictions for the top three men and women plus their top ten "could happen" for both. You can read what they have to say here
. They are predicting Dathan Ritzenhein, Ryan Hall and Mo Trafeh as 1, 2, 3 on the men's side; and Shalane Flanagan, Desiree Davila, and Deena Kastor as 1, 2, 3 on the women's. Interesting reading...
NBC is broadcasting the races from 3-5pm EST.
