May 23 - The Boomtown Half Marathon was scheduled in Joplin for June 11th. With the recent disaster from the tornadoes, first priorities are on recovery. From the event website: "Thank you for the e-mails of concern for us and our city.  At this point, all emergency personnel are involved in search and rescue efforts.  We have no idea when we will be able to meet with city and medical officials regarding the feasibility of proceeding with the run. We will keep you updated.  For now, please keep our city and those families that have lost loved ones in your prayers."

Maybe it did not generate the overheated water-cooler conversation that anticipated Ali-Frazier two months earlier, but in an era of unusually outsize sports personalities, when malevolence of thought and deed were imputed on the slimmest evidence, the Dream Mile fueled a rousing simmer. Like Ali-Frazier, Liquori-Ryun lived up to its hype. more
