is abdi running a fall marathon? if so which one? thank you.
After NYC Half he spoke of planning to run a fall half, but hadn't decided which one. Berlin's obviously out and Chi is cutting it a bit close, so the obvious answer is NYC, esp. given his relationship w/ the organizers - they like him, he's good for quotes and runs well there, and he likes them. Maybe he was waiting to bust a good one at Philly before sealing the deal. Whatever the reason, elite recruiter Dave Monti is probably gonna have to dig a little deeper in his pockets to get Abdi now (although by waiting, Abdi has also reduced his options a bit). In any case, if NYC wants him, they'll get him - they're kind of like the baseball team in the Bronx in terms of acquiring desired athletes - money is virtually no object.
