    I’ll start by saying that I’m a huge fan of this weekend, and love participating in and watching these events. That said, I was a little disappointed over the past weekend at the lack of “elite” talent we were able to attract. The male elite mile had three entrants, and aside from the male champion and a couple of overseas females, the 10k, half, and full marathons were unable to attract any overseas “elite” athletes. Not sure what can be done to change this, but would love to see the talent pool boosted again next year to compete with the likes of the Estwaniks, Marshalls, etc. While it was, and will always be an enjoyable weekend, it left me feeling like something was missing…
