Our matters:

1. That is Veterans Day, established in 1918, because the eleventh day of the eleventh month on the eleventh hour that WW1 ended (1918). Annually, we honor the Veterans amongst us who’ve fought to protect our freedoms.
2. Many nice athletes amongst our veterans. Harrison Dillard, 110m hurdles, Charles Paddock, 100m /200m, Willie Davenport, 110m hurdles, Louis Zamperini, 5000m,

Mal Whitfield gained gold at 800m and 4x400m in London in 1948. In WW@, he was a tail gunner for the Tuskegee Airmen, photograph by Wikipedia Commons.

3. Those that stay in Doha, Qatar, can do a memorial run for John Nuttall, who handed away earlier this week, at 5 pm
at 5-6 Park on Sunday, Nov 12.

Memorial word for John Nuttall from Liz McCoglan Nuttall.

4. Went to Aspire Academy on a number of of my visits to Doha DL every Could, attending to see John Nuttall.
5. Good luck to the Los Altos Excessive crew and Bellarmine groups at CCS at present at Crystal Springs.
6. NCAA regionals yesterday and at present shall be watching to see who will go to NCAA Champs subsequent weekend.

7. Met Harrison Dillard in 2012 on the IAAF Centenary in Barcelona. It was wonderful. To see Harrison with Renaldo Nehemiah, Aries Merritt, and I imagine Allen Johnson was fairly extraordinary. I’m looking for photos! Harrison carried himself with a lot dignity. The one man to win the 100m and 110m hurdles died on November 15, 2019, on the time, the oldest Residing US Olympian. Harrison served in WW2 with the 92nd Infantry, the ONLY All African American division on the entrance traces. Harrison fought in Italy, a complete shit present, as a part of the Fifth Military. I recall Harrison dressed to the “nines” in an important go well with in Barcelona. What a tremendous man!

8. One remaining thought at present. It breaks my coronary heart that I’ve to write down about confusion and battle with the 2024 U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon. The time (early)ought to have been determined previous to the announcement. Your complete course of makes USATF and USOPC look lower than skilled to the worldwide advertising and marketing world, and as each are combating for each greenback on the market with NBA, MLB, and MLS, this type of scenario, which occurs practically each time, needs to be corrected. Hopefully, now that the USATF Board has signed Max Siegel to 5 extra years, they will now go on and get issues like this finished, so journalists can write in regards to the enjoyable stuff coming in Orlando.
