The front crew seem pretty relaxed. Confident they will survive to race at least one more lap.
Choices, choices. 1) Just go for the win 2) Look around and make sure you're safe 3) Run like mad
No time for play. All business.

You don't know? Neither do the runners. Remember, to win... don't be last.
You just won a prize...and survived one more lap.
Daugherty, Calvert, Nikkila, and Perrin...all business.
Epic battle! Shoulder to shoulder to determine the Eliminator. Doesn't get any better than this.

2013 Eliminator Champ, Michael Nikkila, enjoys a conversation with 2008 Olympic 1500m Silver Medalist, Nick Willis, after seeing him cruise to a 3:56 mile.
By the way, his Adidas spikes... awesome.
Willis and The Running Institute put on a great event in Saline, MI on Aug 4, 2013. One of the Eliminator creators, Michael Nikkila, is enjoying a bit of Willis' post-race generosity.
