- Good points ... that said:
* the 2:03 guys were blessed w/pacers and good WX.
* I don't trust the Kenyans ... I think that they are so deep w/talented guys & their federation so corrupt that they conspire to "take turns" winning at these major marathons to "spread the wealth." Other than poverty & said talent pool, I think this is one of the reasons so many leave for other countries.
* I think Kirui was so good that he sand-bagged a stronger finish because he knew he wasn't getting a PR, Course Record (Bonus), and could live-to-run for another day instead of waiting for the Fall.
