A Running Aficionado Watches Track Records Fall at Boston University

 

I decided to drive up to Boston University Thursday night, Jan. 16, 2014 to catch a little indoor track action and hone my ever-evolving sports photography skills. Olympic silver medalist Galen Rupp and teen distance phenom Mary Cain of Bronxville, NY were both there with their Nike Oregon Project coach/distance running great Alberto Salazar--a personal hero of mine. Rupp broke the American men's indoor 5000m record and Cain broke the world junior women's 1000 meter record. I knew they would on those Boston fast boards.
