So here's the list of 2018 World Marathon Majors with their approx dates based on the 2017-2018 WMM calendar:
- Tokyo: Feb 25 (2018)
- Boston: April 16 (2018)
- London: April 22 (2018)
- Berlin: Sept 24 (2017 - similar date next year)
- Chicago: Oct 8 (2017)
- NYC: Nov 5 (2017)
The WMM's aren't spread out very well - conducive to two in a year with one of Tokyo, Boston, London and then one of Berlin, Chicago, NYC as he did this year.
It seems that if Galen wants a faster time to his name, while also living up to the American distance-running poster boy image, he has to run at least one of Boston, Chicago, or NYC and it seems a no-brainer that he does NYC next year.
Maybe London for a fast time in the spring before NYC? What would you do if you were him?
