We are now just waiting to see who has accepted the invitation and the "final" USA Team will be announced.  We have also gotten some initial information about accommodations in Poland from the IAU so it is starting to feel like the race will actually happen this year (the 2011 World race, scheduled to take place in Switzerland, was cancelled).  Stay tuned for more information as I receive it from USATF…..  And in case there was any doubt, of course, I did send in my acceptance.  Can’t wait!!
