Seriously bro? If i read the article?? Do you know anything about marathoning or Ryan Hall? If you did you would have noticed the sheer stupidity of that "observation". Do you think Hall doesn't run 30k+ at race pace in training? Hall races a hard 30-35k drops off and cruises in. That's his mo, he is no Kawauchi. If you think the US trials are going to be faster than a hard workout for him you're an idiot. Ritz if 100% would be the only guy that could give him a race. If there were such a thing as a lock in marathoning it would be Hall in the top 3.
