World XC: Kiplimo and Chebet Repeat, April Fools Highlights, & America's 800m Dark Horse

3 months ago

Jacob Kiplimo and Beatrice Chebet repeated at World XC but what happened to Agnes Ngetich and Joshua Cheptegei?

April Fools came and went and what were the craziest stories in the sport in the last year?

And it's not an April Fools joke that a Texas A&M Aggie ran an NCAA leading 1:44:46 and may be a dark horse candidate at the Olympic Trials.

Plus Elizabeth Leachman broke the high school 5000m record.
