|Subject: ||RE: Ryan Hall Running New York City Marathon This Year|
I know Ryan Hall probably has more money if he does Boston or NYC but if he really is 2:06 or faster now then why doesn't he run anymore fast races. I think if he ran London or Rotterdam or something like that he would be exposed. Its easy to run NYC or Boston where the field is good but not great like London. I would like to see him run another major where top 5 isn't a lock and he really has to work for it. He'll never dispel all the critics unless he runs in top flight races. I'm not saying he hasn't performed well in NYC and Boston but we've seen that. What can he do in a fast race in 2012? Wejo may be correct about the chances of the record being broken. I'll leave it to Rupp cause Hall just seems fine with just running the race that is most financially comfortable instead of running a truly fast race.
Yes, it might be about more money. And if that is why he runs NYC and Boston, good for him. Why do so many people struggle to accept this - he is a professional athlete who might make desicions based on money. Good for him. Exposed? What the hell does that mean? Dispell critics? No, because the critics are mostly idiots who don't accept the above point that he is a professional who is making career (financially comfortable) decisions. Again, good for him.
I look forward to cheering for him in the Olympics and NYC (and I'm not really a fan).
