Apparently its not as simple as that. Rodgers did hold the AR, and Hall doesn't (officially.) What happened since the last guy set an American record in Boston, and Hall's 2:04? Did regulations change, or become implemented in the mean time? Was the course changed in the mean time to no longer be compliant with record setting rules? If so, why?
I should have inserted a 'should' in there. To the extent that there is an American Record in the Marathon, Hall owns it. That said, in my opinion, there is no American Record in the Marathon, just as there is no American Record for XC.
