Loaded Boston Marathon, The Olympic Quadruple, More Kenyan Doping Positives and Pro Signings

1 year ago

Action got underway indoors and especially in cross country but the biggest news of the week was Kenyan doping busts, a loaded Boston Women's Marathon field being announced, and the revealing of the Paris Olympics schedule.

Will Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone try and quadruple? Could Jakob Ingebrigtsen really try the triple?

The big action this week is the Houston full and half marathons where the American records in the half could fall. Want to hear us break it down?
