    "They" don't pick, Toronto bids and wins or loses. Toronto wants it or the organizers want it why?

    1. Go bankrupt

    2. Have a good time

    3. provide venues for excellent results ( this is my favorite choice which I am sure is true. NOT)

    4. To make money ( traditional track people don't often think about making money )


    Why not light a fire under your local people in Florida to do this? Cause likely this is not a venue large numbers of people get excited about which means it will likely be tough to organize or you have to pay lots of people to do the work.

    Felt extra loose. Too loose. I felt like I could kick shaq in the head. Achilles held up so I'm pleased.

    ill play it by ear. Those usatf champs are notorious for having straight finals. not enough showing up. But it depends on the age group.
    Plus USATF tries to TAX the shit outta athletes. 70 FOR 2 EVENTS plus 35 for a usatf membership that is useless. Plus travel and hotel.

    If some of my boys decide to go ill roll
