Hall: Ryan Hall Makes Page
3 of USAToday with a Photo (He'll Choose a Spring Marathon Soon)
"The thing I'm most pleased
about is that my preparation for the
marathon has been really enjoyable. I've never enjoyed running more
than the last couple of months.
I love the long runs; I love doing the hard tempos; I love the volume.
I think I'm made for the longer distances."
Larsen Says Everyone in the World Will Notice Hall's Run, Meb Hasn't
Been to Altitude Yet
Ryan Hall Mania:
Ryan Hall surprised all of us with one of the most impressive and
shocking performances in American distance running history by smashing
the American record and running 59:43 a the Aramco Houston Half
Marathon to pocket $21,000. He even shocked himself as even the best
splits on his hand came out to 1:00:01 for the half.

In Case You
Made the Terrible Decision to Not Come Here Recently:
59:43 for RYAN HALL
Yep, sub 1 hour in the half marathon for an America on American soil on
a certified course. One of the best American distance performances ever
as Ryan Hall won the US Title, the Aramco Houston Half, picking up
$21,000, to become the 9th fastest ever on a record certifiable course.

Washington Post printed
such a one sided story. Sure sabotage is a possibility (and Trevor
Graham and THG clearly shows rival sprint camps will turn in other
sprint camps) but considering Gatlin's ties to Trevor Graham,
there are plenty of people out there (including
this guy who even links to the
pink bottle mentioned in the article)
who don't think Gatlin's case is that strange. Perhaps the saddest
thing is that everyone in the article assumes Gatlin has to be
sabotaged or otherwise there is no way USADA could have caught him
doping. Shows how confident everyone is in the testing system that it
is more likely a top sprinter was sabotaged than actually caugh doping.
