10 miles into the race isn't exactly a last second jump shot.
Dear Al Trautwig and Larry Rawson,
No one wants to watch the women's race. We know what is going to happen.
Erkesso and Tune aren't poverty stricken. They are rich in Ethiopia.
I want to kill myself having ot watch such a tiny split screen. Why can't they do it like the NYRR where you can pick the men's race?
Yeah I agree, if this surge slows and they get back together Meb will be the one paying for it for following in the end and Ryan is playing it smart... finally. I hope for Ryan this happens because I dont really want my prediction to come true, bashing can get pretty harsh.
Anyone know hall's last mile split? He looks bad now, but maybe he's still clicking off 4:50s and in control. If he lost the distance in a mile, he can make it back up in a half marathon, and no way they're holding 430's.
Way to cover Meb! Sometimes I don't think it's so much Hall being in front, but he needs to toughen up and and hang in there on the moves. He picks people off at the end, but that's just racing for 3rd, if you want to win you have to cover, then hope being in position late will give you the energy you need.
PS: Please show the f*cking men more!
|the reality of it|
I look away and Ryan Hall aka Mr. 4:50 has been completely and totally dropped.
Now 10-12 africans with a sizeable lead. They keep showing women doing nothing but running 5:50 miles and wheelchair interviews. THIS IS HORSESHIT.
I'm going to say it again, he's running the same pace. What benefit would he have from wasting energy covering a move that won't succeed?
The correct thing to do would be let them come back, then if he feels like attacking, do it then when they're trying to recover.
