Long May He Run


I’ve written about Kyle Merber this summer as he attempts to comeback from a freak injury he sustained during a roadside run on Long Island.

Thanks to Stephen Lee of the Columbia Athletics Communication office, I was able to talk to Kyle yesterday as he was cooling down from a practice run at Lehigh. I wrote about what happened on his fateful day and the long road back over at ArmoryTrack.com. He even texted in some photos of his shoe, which couldn’t stop a broken bottle from cutting into his foot.

But for Kyle, today at the Brooks Paul Short Invitational is a big test. He still feels pain in his foot, but ar less frequently then before. I asked him to put a percentage on where he stands today.

“I’d say that I am at 99 percent,” he shot back. “I guess we find out for real tomorrow.”
