The Birmingham Diamond League is in the books, Abel Kipsang keeps winning, Trayvon Bromell got DQd, and how should the false start rule be changed? Keely Hodgkinson looks like a superstar, but can she have a rivalry with Athing Mu if she never beats her?

High Schoolers Juliette Whittaker and Cade Flatt ran the #2 times ever in NYC, did the pre-race showers have something to do with it?

(Sponsor) The **AIRWAAV® ENDURANCE Performance Mouthpiece is here!** Airwaav is a relatively new training tool that launched late in 2020 after nearly 16 years of research. Now they have the ENDURANCE model that provides a more snug fit, keeping the mouthpiece in place for endurance athletes who relax their jaw during long-distance workouts or races. The AIRWAAV performance mouthpiece fits along your bottom teeth and directs your tongue down and forward creating the “optimal airway opening” resulting in:

  • Increased airway opening by up to 25% resulting in an immediate 28.5% respiratory rate reduction during a steady-state run
  • Increased endurance — by reducing respiratory rate by 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production
  • Faster recovery times — by reducing cortisol build-up by up to 50%

LetsRun listeners can save 10% with the code "LR10" Dig into the science and put AIRWAAV to the test. Click here to try it out.
