What does everyone think about Shalane Flanagan's talk the last few months about going after Deena Kastor's 2:19:36 American record in the 2014 Berlin Marathon? Can she do it? I personally have my doubts, but I haven't really heard much speculation on it, which is surprising, because when is the last time an American woman has targeted a sub-2:20 marathon? Very few women of any nationality have ever set this lofty time as their goal.
On the men's front, I believe hearing a few months back that Dennis Kimetto was shooting for the men's WR. As a 2:03 man, it's fair to say he has a shot.
