The track and field portion of the Olympic Games begin this weekend in London and for Mammoth Track Club athletes and their specialty disciplines, the four-year wait is just about over.
Morgan Uceny, in the womenâs 1,500 meters, Amy Hastings in the 10,000 meters, and marathoner Meb Keflezighi all run on different days, most of them live but some on delayed broadcast.
Former Mammoth Track Club members Ryan Hall and Alistair Cragg, running for Ireland, also will run the marathon, on the final day of the Olympics on Aug. 12.
You might have seen Katie McWilliams last weekend at the Pink Froyd show in the Village.
She was hard to miss, once you noticed.
âYou know that Keller Williams song, âFreeker by the Speaker?ââ she said afterward. âI was a freeker by the left speaker at Pink Froyd. What a great show. I was getting after it.
âI had to take my shoes off because they didnât want to move as fast as my feet!â
McWilliams, aka âKatie Mac,â is the music director on Mammothâs KMMT radio (106.5 FM) and the architect behind its new, indescribable music format.
