    Was hoping to see Texas here. I'm a longtime track nerd who covered T&F for years -- though not for the past several -- and would love to pick up some freelance gigs for area meets.

    Did some work for MileSplit way back when, directly for the founder (and was a subscriber for a long time). And Brandon's an old timer who started the Virginia site in the early 00s. I know FloSports and private equity are heavily involved now, so can't speak for current conditions, but this is a big name in track and field media.

    Idaho/eastern Wash. area....not for less than $40-$60 depending on the story or stories.....I set the pay but am very reasonable. Track season almost over so my timing sucks. But I did contact you. Texas, Cali, etc., don't always need the extra attention. Idaho isn't the most undercovered state in the USA, not the most 'overcovered'. Thanks though!
