Drake Relays start Thursday

Lolo Jones has decided to run the Drake Relays after waffling on a return to her hometown meet a year ago.

But rather than compete in the high-profile 100-meter hurdles, Jones will make her transition from the bobsled back to the blue oval in a much more relaxed event.

The two-time Olympic hurdler and 2014 Sochi Games bobsledder will take it relatively easy Friday night when she competes in the shuttle hurdle relay.

The 105th Drake Relays kick off with a light schedule Thursday. Titles will be decided in the decathlon, heptathlon and 5,000 and 10,000.
