I wonder if today is the pinnacle of Alberto's career as a coach and not London 2012.
Alberto started NOP intent on trying to build the next great American marathoner and after some stops and starts, and controversy along the way, today he hit it out of the park. Alberto appeared to be in tears as he hugged Galen after Galen won the men's race. Then a few minutes later Hasay crossed the line in 2:20:57, #2 American ever.
Galen is now 4 for 4 in his marathons and Hasay 2 for 2. Alberto appears to have figured out the marathon as a coach.
