When the hell is Ritz going to be honest with himself. I've never seen such fade in a 12k. 31 seconds between his fastest and his slowest, with an astounding slow lap of 3:22. It shows that he still thinks in far bigger terms than he can actually deliver. It further shows that we shouldnt expect much of him in the marathon before he wises up a bit. The sage marathoners kicked ass, and the 'fast' guys looked inexperienced, arrogant and foolish.
So this race went out a little fast at the beginning. Big deal. Everyone went out a bit too fast. Ritz was just trying for the win. Not sure how that's thinking in far bigger terms than he can deliver. No one in that race is out of his league. He just didn't win on this day. Too many of you people are so quick to rip on runners when they have bad performances. I see that Webb has finally fallen back to the level of SUCKAGE. Guess I'm going to have to start defending that guy again too like I did when he was mediocre at Michigan.
Nice win for Culpepper and nice run for Goucher, but the fact of the matter is that both of those guys are on the downside of their careers (along with Meb). The future lies with Ritz and Webb and Hall and Tegenkamp. Even Abdi is getting close to the top of his hill. I really don't see a need to rip any of them.
