Yesterday, Oregon did not suck. #nofilter #USATFoutdoors

Hear ye! Hear ye! Track and field fans, I've got some HOT, HOT, HOT news! I’ll be signing autographs from 4-5PM today at the Official USATF Merchandise tent. Don't worry, I won't be as stand off-ish as in this photo. #USATFoutdoors #USATF #nike #runnerspace #ShowUsYourWings

Life goals realized. Thanks, Eugene Saturday Market, @macfleet @sammurphy33 and @tomfarrell1 for the memorable brunch.

Reminiscing about the first time I ever raced at Historic Hayward Field: the 2007 Pre-Pre Classic. Here's a photo, courtesy of @maxwellleer , of me doing a stride 8 years ago. Roughly 50 people, most memorably the rowdy teammates of @jordanmcnamara , filed in to the stadium on a drizzly evening to watch a single 1500m race. Amazing how far Distance Night and the overall marketing (notice the lack of sponsorship signage on the backstretch) of the #PreClassic has come. #niketf #nikerunning

How'd you start your day? @nicksymmonds and I were up at 4 am for a guided fishing excursion on the McKenzie River. If the early bird gets the worm we certainly hope the early anglers slay the fish!

Capitalizing on opportunities: Road trip to PDX with @oregontrackclubelite to celebrate the unveiling of the countdown clock to #portland2016 . We were lucky enough to see @aishapraught practice her victory pose. Come join us in Pioneer Square for the festivities!

Fan boy-ing HARD at the Oregon Twilight Meet with the third fastest high school miler ever in the U.S. @matoneghy #mile #sub4 #niketf #nikerunning

#tbt to that time when my big brother @maxwellleer accompanied my P.I.C. @aishapraught through a grinding 1k-reps session. As the ever perspicacious Vince Vaughn reminds us in Wedding Crashers, "People helping people. It's powerful stuff." 📷: @jwjeffer #nikeLA #niketf #nikerunning #jibstreettrackclub #jstc #teamRunGum #verynice #thatsfine #track

2.5 yrs later we (Leers) stand unified as a family and my father has "graduated" and just had his cancer port removed. @williamleer + I have definitely grown more grey and are now both over 30, but the love and strength of our family is still in tact and more powerful than ever. We survive; we move on...together. Family is where it all starts and ends and I'm so grateful for these three every damn day of my life. And to everybody who has helped us over these last few years, we love you and are very blessed for your love. #leers #preach #oceansheal {PC: @jwjeffer}

Reveling in post-workout bliss with @aishapraught . Successful days had by all at the track this afternoon. Strong community feel as athletes from different training groups cheered one another towards greatness. #niketf #nike #nikerunning

#tbt to our #DiscoveryRun heading east on the Urban Trail in January. Hit up the same trails for the Bagel Run this morning, swapping mud for a little dust. It's so nice to have the expansive variety of trails in Flagstaff clear and runnable in the spring. And even better to tackle these runs with the locals who get lost far less often than the visitors. #FlagstaffMuch #trailrunning #nikerunning #otcelite #verynice

Feeling fortunate to have all of the members of #teamRunGum in Flagstaff. It was a definite no-brainer to #squadup and hit a group run at Buffalo Park yesterday evening. #niketf #nikerunning #nike #FlagstaffMuch #TotalSportsUS 📷: @jwjeffer

Easter service at Church of the Sunday Long Run was a powerful reminder to appreciate each and every day we get to put one foot in front of the other. Many thanks to the @oregontrackclubelite , Brooks Beasts and our friends from Germany, Sweden and Canada for making this such an enjoyable run. Happy Easter, everyone! #nevernotrunning #FlagstaffMuch #Flagstaff #nikerunning #verynice #thatsfine

Discarding an apparel item or a no-look catch? As Sally Kipyego (follow her @sallykipyego) is one of the most impressive athletes I have had the pleasure of training with, your guess is as good as mine. #niketf #nikerunning #nike #otcelite #FlagstaffMuch 📷: Nick Johnson

Want to know why runners flock to Flagstaff for altitude training camps? This photo says it all. It's the miles of dirt roads and trails, beautiful weather, and a running community that is second to none! Today's Church of the Sunday Long Run service was held at the venerable A1 Mountain Road. The message of the sermon was simple yet powerful: great things can be accomplished if you're willing to work together as a team. On to another successful week... Happy training, everyone!

Post-"Church of the Sunday Long Run" class picture. Reminiscing about the good ol' days. Who wins for cheesiest pose? #skittles #tastetherainbow #longrun #middleschool

Had the tempo goin' up on a Tuesday during my #verynice workout this morning at UCLA. Get ready for more pictures of mountains and dirt roads; tomorrow I (along with the vast majority of America's best middle distance athletes) am headed back up to Flagstaff for five weeks of altitude training. #verynice #nikerunning #niketf #justdoit Photo credit: @jwjeffer

#tbt to getting my life back on track. Nothing like a couple of rejuvenating weeks in SoCal to make the body whole again. Hefty amounts of sun and rest killed off the virus that derailed my Wanamaker Mile race and helped replenish my stores of vitamins C & D before the next hard training block begins tomorrow! @nicksymmonds and I will be honoring those competing at the @usatf Indoor National Champs this weekend in Boston with a #verynice ball-buster workout tomorrow at UCLA. #niketf #nikeLA #nikerunning #werunLA #teamRunGum Photo credit: @jwjeffer

Sometimes things don't go as planned. But there's no excuse for not being prepared to get the job done to the best of your ability. That means being geared up and packed for PRs! Today's makeshift workout called for a little strength, a little speed, and a need for comfort in battling the elements in New Jersey. An extra special thank you to @princetontrack for granting @aishapraught and me guest access to their fantastic facilities. #BeijingBound Get fitted for fast at nike.com/tf #niketf
