Feb 10 - No, it's not Keith Dowell news all the time, every day, 24/7, but we have to mention one more story on our stair master. If you missed last night's evening news, KMBC's Bev Chapman caught Keith running up the city hall stairs in Kansas City. the video

"Hope I didn't wake you up." Rhonda LeValdo got an early morning call Saturday with an offer to help save the Haskell track program. It was Billy Mills. Can her running hero pull off another victory? Stay tuned.

Feb 6 - From Skycity1's Blog: I guess I will start with something that made me kinda upset, the school I teach at is a University for only federally recognized Native Americans.  It’s a great place to teach and I get to meet great people all the time.  The one thing that brought me here though was my dream to be a great runner like Billy Mills, and if you don’t know who he is, he is the ONLY American to win a gold medal in the 10,000 meter run in the Toyko Olympics 1964. more

The Today Show reported on the Empire State Building Run-Up. Can you spot Keith Dowell within 7 seconds?

Feb 3 - Empire State Building Run-Up: Keith Dowell place 6th in the M50-59 category, a sweet run up after missing his chance to climb the Sears Tower in November due to an upper respiratory infection. Dugan Arnett, Lawrence Journal-World, wrote a (bleepin') fine story today on Keith and his preparations.

He follows in the footsteps of one of the greats in the ESB Run-Up. Al Waquie was the winner from 1983-87, with his best time in 1986 in 11:27. Al was a two-time All-America cross-country runner at Haskell Indian Junior College as well as a three-time winner of the Pikes Peak Marathon (1979-81). more on Waquie
