Dude is retiring at 39, no? Be good if he kept at it and set new masters records, but I thought he'd be retiring?

7:34 at any age is insane, but at 38 years old? Ridiculous

The huge margin of victory is stunning. What a great run.

According to TFN's list, this would be the 5th best 3000 mark (or equivalent from 2 miles) in US history.

7:32.43 Bernard Lagat (Nike) 02/17/07
7:33.45+ Galen Rupp (Nike) 02/11/12
7:33.77+ ——Lagat 02/12/11
7:34.65 ——Lagat 02/21/08
7:34.71 ——Lagat 02/02/2013

TFN's indoor list is here:

http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/index.php/tafn-lists?list_id=14&sex_id=M&yyear=2008

In terms of our "What about the sport?", theme can someone tell me why isn't he running in Boston on ESPN tongiht against Rupp?
build suspense

They both run for Nike. They could both be building interest for a future head-to-head meeting. Works to Nike's advantage, as well as Lagat's and Rupp's.

Probably has to do with appearance fees. Boston got some studs and probably had no money left for Lagat. The bigger question is why won't Galen be defending his 2 mile record at Millrose?

Well he owns a home in Germany, so maybe he was out there anyway? It'd make sense to race in Germany rather than making a trans-Atlantic flight if he was already over there.

Stop with your haterism! Bernard Lagat is the bigger name in track and field, the question should be why isn't Galen Rupp racing against Bernard Lagat and a much tougher field overseas?

GET IT RIGHT!

Are you disagreeing that Bernard Lagat is a bigger name in track and field then Galen Rupp? If you are then you are definitely high!

Post race comment by Lagat:

Yes, I was suprised when I was in the lead all by myself! Usually, I'm the one chasing the leaders, that's how I race. But I did notice Augustine Choge was slowing down a little bit. For my indoor season, I had set two goals: To run a PR in Karlsruhe - which I unfortunately didn't manage to do - but I tried my best and I'm very pleased nevertheless. And I want to break the 2 mile AR on February 16 in New York City, That's my focus right now.
