That is because she was shut out of Boston. Desiree and Kara meant NO MORE MONEY. London will give her a chance to run faster and improve her value. Running 2 minutes back of Davila in Chicago set her back in the earning department.[/quote]
you say boston cant afford a women who ran the best race of her life last year setting a personal best of 2:26:22 the 43rd fastest marathon in the year 2010.
the other poster said they cant afford meb because they dont have enough for 4 elite americans.
yet boston i am sure will try to get
1. the defending champions teyba erkesso and the younger robery cheruiyiot the boston course record holder at 2:05:52.
some runners i think they will try to get.
1. new york champion gebre gebremariam (they will probably get him as his agent is boston based)
2. wilson kiprotich ran 2:04:57 at frankfurt
3. geoffrey mutai lost twice to makau, but ran fast both times.
4. tadesse tola
okay #2,3, and 4 will likely run a faster course like paris or rotterdam.
5. wilson chebet
1. worknesh kidane the wife of gebremariam, who likely will debut at boston as her agent is the same boston based agent as her husband, more cross country medals than any woman (9 individuals including 2 wins.
2. sharon cherop
3. 18 year old merima hashim
4. they will try to get lineth chepkurui to debut at boston.
5. kim smith went to nearby providence college.
like the men they probably will only get 1-2 of the 5 mentioned. lets say they just get the gebremariam and kidane and/or the defending champions cheruiyiot and erkesso, that will cost more in appearance money than the 3 americans who have already been confirmed and throw in meb and ritz.
my guess for appearance money
1. kidane 250k
2. hall 200k
3. cheruiyiot 175k
4. gebremariam 150k
5. goucher and erkesso 75k each
7. davilla 25k
if boulet ran boston she would get about 10-15k appearance money.
